National Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation (NACCHO) Annual general meeting and members meeting

 

Overview

This NACCHO event focuses on articulating vision, formulating good policy, celebrate successes and raises the national profile. The theme of the event is Healthy futures.

NACCHO has had one of the busiest and most successful years in in its 21-year history with the release of NACCHO's Ten-point Plan, Investing in Healthy Futures for Generational Change 2013 -2030 alongside the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare Healthy for life report card on Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Services and input into the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Plan (NATSHIP).

The 10 point plan will be the platform that will form the basis of how Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Sector will work with the new Abbott government to guide Investing in Healthy Futures for Generational Change.

HealthInfoNet Cafe

The National Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisations (NACCHO) members meeting and annual general meeting (AGM) aimed to update its members from across Australia on NACCHO’s vision and the formulation of their vision and policy for the future. The meeting also highlighted the achievements by celebrating the successes and raising the national profile of NACCHO.  The meeting also gives NACCHO members a valuable networking opportunity as members travelled from urban, rural and remote settings across Australia to attend this meeting. 


The HealthInfoNet hosted a café for both days of the meeting, where Michelle Elwell, Neil Thompson and Jaime Read provided information to 270 delegates about a variety of health topics available on the HealthInfoNet web resource. Michelle also handed out free copies of the Review of ear health and hearing among Indigenous Australians, the Review of acute rheumatic fever and rheumatic heart disease among Indigenous Australians, the Review of physical activity among Indigenous people, the Review of cardiovascular health among Indigenous Australians, and the Review of kidney disease among Indigenous people.
