Heal Country, heal our nation. Celebrating NAIDOC Week
This Sunday marks the commencement of NAIDOC week (4-11 July).
NAIDOC stands for National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee. Its origins can be traced to the emergence of Aboriginal groups in the 1920′s which sought to increase awareness in the wider community of the status and treatment of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians.
An important part of our work in the community is recognising and raising awareness of the different health outcomes experienced within the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.
This year the theme for NAIDOC Week is Heal Country, heal our nation.
