The Aboriginal Health Council of WA is honoured to have been announced as a finalist in the Quality Innovation Performance Excellence Awards.
The Awards acknowledge community organisations across Australia that provide high quality care and/or services to members of their local communities.
AHCWA supports 22 Aboriginal Medical Services across WA to deliver culturally appropriate health services to Aboriginal people.
The organisation has been selected as a finalist under the award sub-category Excellence in partnerships, with an emphasis on diversity and inclusive practice within the Community Services Sector.
CEO Des Martin said AHCWA was thrilled to be a finalist for the award.
“AHCWA assists its member services in their efforts to Close the Gap, and we are dedicated to improving the health and wellbeing of Aboriginal people,” he said.
“AHCWA supports its members in many ways, including running training courses, giving advice on managing funding, assisting with capacity building and helping to deal with governance or management issues.
“WA is a diverse and geographically challenging state, and we work hard to maintain the relationships between our members, the community, government and stakeholders.
“We are really grateful that these efforts have been recognised through becoming a finalist in these awards.”
The Excellence Recipients under each sub-category for the QIP Awards will be announced at the AGPAL and QIP 2016 Conference in Brisbane and the award will be presented at a gala dinner on Friday 27th May.
