The 2012 National Indigenous Health Conference: Many Pathways, One Outcome is designed to bring together both government and non-government agencies who are working in the field of Indigenous health with the belief that working together can close the gap between the state of Indigenous Health as compared to the health of mainstream Australians.
This gathering will highlight some of the existing indigenous health programs currently implemented in Aboriginal communities and provide a unique opportunity for delegates and speakers to see the power of people networking together in one place, at one time with similar goals and exchange information regarding the successes and challenges that workers involve in implementing Aboriginal health programs faced. Hence, we encourage grassroots communities to participate and present their existing, successful programs during the event.
