A large delegation of AHCWA staff attended this year’s National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Members Conference this October on Ngunnawal and Ngambri Country (Canberra).
The NACCHO Members’ conference is an annual gathering of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health sector leaders from across the country. With over 400 delegates expected each year, the conference brings opportunities for attendees to network, learn, influence and celebrates an ongoing drive to self-determination.
The 2022 NACCHO Members’ Conference focused on the theme ‘Hounour the Past, Prepare for the Future’ and delegates conferred on shaping the future of the sector, and the revision of the NACCHO constitution, an opportunity to build an even stronger direct voice for NACCHO’s 144 members.
The NACCHO Youth Conference was also held during the week, and AHCWA’s Sexual Health and BBV Program Officer Katiska Davis and Tackling Indigenous Smoking Program Officer Samuel Stubbs presented to their peers on their work in Aboriginal health.
