Lead the Way, Challenge the Possibilities, Imagine the Future
Esplanade Hotel Fremantle
Welcome to the 2019 West Australian Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Sector Conference, which is hosted annually by the Aboriginal Health Council of Western Australia (AHCWA).
We are pleased to advise that The Hon. Ken Wyatt AM, MP – Minister for Aged Care; Minister for Indigenous Health will be officially opening the conference and the Hon. Roger Cook MLA – Deputy Premier; Minister for Health; Mental Health will be delivering a Keynote Address.
The Conference Program will focus on the theme – Lead the Way, Challenge the Possibilities, Imagine the Future.
The Conference will promote the journey of the sector so far, the successes along the way and plans for the future of Aboriginal holistic health care delivery provided by (AHCWA’s) 23 Aboriginal community controlled health services (ACCHS) located throughout Western Australia.
Our national body, the National Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation (NACCHO) defines Aboriginal health as ‘not just the physical well-being of an individual but refers to the social, emotional and cultural well-being of the whole Community in which each individual is able to achieve their full potential as a human being thereby bringing about the total well-being of their Community’.
Special guests will provide the forum with exciting new information on health initiatives and there will be state and federal government updates on where the sector will be heading, in 2019 and beyond.
The Lead the Way, Challenge the Possibilities, Imagine the Future Conference will also showcase the AHCWA member services through a series of presentations over the two days as well as highlighting the following:
- Who led the Way in Perth Metro?
- Who led the Way in the Bush?
- Sustainable Aboriginal Workforce and Pathways
- Youth Health and the AHCWA Aboriginal Youth Strategy
- Improving Water Quality in Remote Communities
- Public Health Issues and Outbreaks
- Sustainable Health Review Report
- National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)
- Rheumatic Heart Disease (RHD) National Roadmap
- Precision Public Health
- Mappa Project Update – Feedback on the Controlled Live Trial
Delegates will be provided with an opportunity for professional development, networking and capacity building whilst sharing their wisdom on Aboriginal ways of working and successful program experience.
