VicHealth has a strong history of working collaboratively with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities to meet locally identified needs in culturally appropriate ways.

Download the Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP)

VicHealth’s first Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) is one of a number of mechanisms that VicHealth will employ over the period of our new Action Agenda to ensure that we are supporting best practice in Aboriginal health promotion1, both with our partner organisations and within our own organisation.

The plan provides an important opportunity to ensure that we are truly ‘walking the talk’ and living the VicHealth values in relation to Aboriginal health promotion. The RAP identifies actions VicHealth will undertake over the coming months and years to ensure our organisation and culture is inclusive to all staff, visitors and stakeholders.

1. Given the organisation’s mandate to work in Victoria, VicHealth uses the term ‘Aboriginal’ to refer to people of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander descent in relation to programs and resources. ‘Indigenous’ is retained when it is part of the title of a report or group.
