Victorian Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation Indigenous palliative care program

 

Overview

The Victorian Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation (VACCHO) aims to develop and provide a culturally-appropriate palliative care system for Indigenous Victorians. The goals of this program are to provide culturally-safe and sustainable palliative care services for Indigenous people, to develop and increase the awareness and access to palliative care services, and to develop a sustainable relationship between palliative care providers and Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisations (ACCHO's) in Victoria.

The VACCHO palliative care program works in partnership with Aboriginal Medical Services, Indigenous organisations, mainstream health services, and Palliative Care Services Victoria to assist in regional planning to meet the palliative care needs of Indigenous people, families and communities.
