2010-2011 has been yet another busy year for the AH&MRC with many challenges and positive achievements.
Importantly, the AH&MRC has developed its strategic plan 2011-2014 which captures and affirms our commitment to the pivotal values of Aboriginal Community Control, including Aboriginal culture and sovereignty, wholistic health, respect, integrity and inclusion, human rights and social justice, quality and accountability and genuine and meaningful partnership.
Equally important is the message that if the stated shared commitments of State Government, Australian Government and the AH&MRC are to be met, then decisions must be informed by those with the most expertise on what is effective in Aboriginal health services the Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Sector.
The AH&MRC Strategic Plan 2011-2014 identified focus areas, objecives to meet the health needs and aspirations of Aboriginal peoples in NSW.
The AH&MRC remains steadfastly committed to achieving health equity for the Aboriginal peoples of New South Wales. To this end, within the broad headings of knowledge, service and leadership, the AH&MRC has supported our members, the Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Services (ACCHS) of NSW, to deliver comprehensive, culturally appropriate primary health care in their respective Aboriginal communities.
This document was published as a result of the 1997 Review of Eye Health in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Communities the Australian Government and the National Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation (NACCHO). The review concluded that if Aboriginal people were to seek and obtain eye care, it would need to be made available within ACCHSs.
A Proven Model for the Role of the Aboriginal Eye Health Coordination is fundamental to the success of the Aboriginal Eye Health Program in NSW.
The Aboriginal Eye Health Coordinator (AEHC) has been a critical role in an Aboriginal Eye Care Programme that has provided appropriate eye care to Aboriginal communities throughout NSW for ten years.
With the AEHC at the centre, the programme has been an efficient and cost-effective model that has been fully controlled by the Aboriginal community with minimum outside help.
Our overarching goal throughout 2008/2009, as always, has been to support and represent our member Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Services (ACCHS) and promote the unique and invaluable role they play in improving the health of Aboriginal peoples. AH&MRC has achieved many of its objectives by providing priority support services to Member Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Services (ACCHS).
