We respect the Ngunnawal people of this region as the Traditional Custodians and cultural knowledge holders of this land.
Capital Health Network (CHN) recognises the importance of partnerships to improve the health and wellbeing of First Nations people in the ACT. Central to this, CHN facilitates the co-design, funding and support for programs that improve access to culturally safe, holistic and integrated health and well-being services for the more than 8,600 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people living in the ACT. We acknowledge and strive to work together with the many other organisations providing important services to the First Nations community in the ACT.
We know that culturally appropriate and safe primary health care services are essential in supporting First Nations people with detection and management of health risk factors, social and emotional well-being issues, and chronic illnesses.
