Aboriginal health

The need to support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to choose and adopt culturally appropriate healthy lifestyles and to manage chronic conditions is important to COORDINARE - South Eastern NSW PHN.

Developing strong partnerships with both Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and key service providers will be critical to supporting better health outcomes for these members of our community.

The Department of Human Services has five new online guides to help health professionals provide services to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander patients.

The Our Health, Our Way resources on the NSW Kids website also provides videos and information resources to assist Aboriginal young people navigate the health system.
