Aboriginal Health Council of South Australia Inc. (AHCSA)

 

Description

The Aboriginal Health Council of South Australia Inc. (AHCSA) is the peak body representing Aboriginal health and alcohol and other drug use services, and Aboriginal health advisory committees in South Australia, both at a state and national level.

Their primary role is to be the 'health voice' for all Aboriginal peoples in South Australia. This is achieved by advocating for the community and supporting workers with appropriate Aboriginal health programs. A resource library is also maintained for use by the community and general public.

AHCSA exists to redress the long-standing and ongoing inequity in access to mainstream health services and health and wellbeing status between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people.

Equally, it honours and builds upon the resistance, tenacity and creativity of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in developing and maintaining culturally relevant and accountable primary health care services for Aboriginal communities. AHCSA is committed to understanding, responding to and supporting the achievement of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health needs and aspirations in SA. It promotes the self-determination of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders.
