Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples

”Aboriginal health” means 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. It is a whole of life view and includes the cyclical concept of life-death-life. (National Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation).

We acknowledge that the concept of health for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples also extends to connection to Country, spirituality and Community.
