South West HHS First Nations Health Equity Strategy 2022-2025

South West Hospital and Health Service First Nations Health Equity Strategy is a landmark document that demonstrates our commitment to improving the health, wellbeing and lived experience of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and communities in the South West for generations to come.

Closing the Gap in health outcomes requires a collective effort across the entire health system, workforces and primary health care sector. Working in genuine partnership standing shoulder to shoulder with our partners and communities, we are committed to continuing our journey to achieve Health Equity, Our Way – Together.

The South West HHS First Nations Health Equity Strategy 2022–2025 has been co-designed in consultation with our prescribed developmental stakeholders. This sets out the pathway for First Nations health equity and consists of six priority areas for inclusion in our strategy: 

  1. Actively eliminate racial discrimination and institutional racism.
  2. Increase access to better health services.
  3. Influence the social, cultural and economic determinants of health.
  4. Deliver sustainable, culturally safe and responsive healthcare services.
  5. Work with First Nations people to design, deliver, monitor and review health services.
  6. Develop a culturally safe, skilled and valued First Nations workforce.
