What We Do

Our organisation, through our members work, contributes significantly to closing the gap in health outcomes between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians, which is of direct and immediate benefit to Aboriginal communities across Australia and also a significant national priority for Australia. NATSIHWA supports Health Workers and Health Practitioners and their communities through our programs, by:

- Providing tools and resources for Health Workers and Health Practitioners and their services

- Facilitating and delivering professional development opportunities to contribute to their effectiveness in their roles

- Raising awareness in broader Australia public (particularly health sector) and building alliances to address Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health priorities

- Communicating and networking across the Health Sector to bring greater awareness of the effective models of care for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples

- Building networks among Health Workers and Health Practitioners, and other health professions and the broader health sector

- Offering mentoring to develop leadership and capabilities in our members
