Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Workforce Working Group (ATSIHWWG)

 

Description

ATSIHWWG is responsible for the planning, implementation, coordination and monitoring of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Workforce National Strategic Framework. Key areas of interest include: increasing the number of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people working across all the health professions; improving the clarity of roles, regulation and recognition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health workers as a key component of the health workforce, and improving vocational education and training sector support for training for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health workers; addressing the role and development needs of other health workforce groups contributing to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health; improving the effectiveness of training, recruitment and retention measures targeting both non-Indigenous Australian and Indigenous Australian health staff working within Aboriginal primary health services; including clear accountability for government programs to quantify and achieve these objectives and support for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisations and people to drive the process. The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Workforce National Strategic Framework presents a five to ten year reform agenda to build a competent health workforce to address the health needs of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
