The Aboriginal health promotion and chronic care partnership (AHPACC) initiative supports Aboriginal community-controlled health organisations (ACCHOs) and community health services to work in partnership to develop and deliver local services and programs that prevent and manage the high prevalence of chronic disease within Aboriginal communities.
More than 20 organisations receive ongoing (recurrent) funding to deliver AHPACC as partnerships or consortia within Victoria. The way in which AHPACC is implemented is dependant on local planning and community needs.
