Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Workers Association

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Workers will be provided by the government $1.2 million dollars over three years to establish the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Workers Association.

The Minister for Indigenous Health Warren Snowdon said the nation’s 1,600 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health workers are a key part of the health workforce.

The association will provide advocacy, mentoring and support for indigenous health workers.
