The Aboriginal Health Council of Western Australia (AHCWA) acknowledges the outcome of the Voice to Parliament Referendum. While this outcome may bring mixed emotions within our communities, we want to emphasise that AHCWA remains committed to improving the health and wellbeing of Aboriginal People and their communities in WA.
Our commitment to addressing the pressing health disparities and the broader health and wellbeing of Aboriginal and communities remains unwavering. We believe that Aboriginal People deserve the best possible health outcomes, and we will continue to advocate for improved healthcare access.
We value the passionate voices of everyone who participated in this referendum and encourage ongoing dialogue and unity within our communities.
As we progress, AHCWA will continue collaborating with government agencies, non-government organisations, and our communities to find innovative ways to address the health issues that disproportionately affect Aboriginal People. We remain committed to pursuing every avenue to ensure that the health and wellbeing of our communities are at the forefront of the national agenda.
Our shared journey toward reconciliation and self-determination is ongoing, and we stand strong, resilient and committed to a brighter future for all Aboriginal People.
