Close the Gap
The Close the Gap Campaign — a grouping of Indigenous and non-Indigenous health and community organisations — together with nearly 200,000 Australians are calling on governments to take real and measurable action to achieve Indigenous health equality by 2030.
IAHA is a proud member of the Close the Gap Steering Committee. Join us in resetting the agenda and driving Indigenous led solutions to achieve Indigenous health equality within a generation. Sign the pledge to Close the Gap.
Racism. It Stops with Me
IAHA has zero tolerance for all forms of racism and advocates strongly that responsibility for eliminating racism from our healthcare system does not just rest with individuals; strong commitment from and collaboration between individuals, organisations and communities is required.
Racism has no place in Australia. Since 2012, Racism. It Stops with Me has helped our community respond to prejudice. It is a campaign built on the efforts of people in their neighbourhoods, schools, universities, clubs, and workplaces.
Whatever your walk of life, wherever you live, wherever you come from – you can make our community a better place for everyone. Join us and take a stand against racism. Visit website
As a national Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peak organisation, IAHA is an active member of the Redfern Statement Alliance. We support an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander led and co-designed approach to nation-building providing an opportunity to meaningfully address Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander disadvantage with all governments. Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander leaders came together in June 2016 to announce the Redfern Statement – a powerful list of clear policy asks of our political leaders.
Change the Record
The rates at which Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are experiencing violence and being put in prison has reached a crisis point.
Many of the solutions are already there from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. Now we need to make it happen, doing so in a way that empowers Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, communities and services to continue to drive the solutions.
Together, we can change the record. Together, we can build stronger and safer communities. Visit Website
