More than half of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples attend mainstream general practice.
But the Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisations (ACCHOs) are vital in the provision of culturally appropriate medical care for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. ACCHOs aim to bridge the health equity gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians. Learn more about the history of ACCHOs.
