Indigenous awards ceremony

Indigenous organisations and individuals that have promoted quality and excellence in health care to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have been recognised in new national award ceremony.

Minister for Indigenous Health, Warren Snowdon, presented recipients with their awards at the inaugural Healthy for Life and New Directions Mothers and Babies Services Health Awards in Brisbane yesterday.

The awards follow a conference bringing together representatives who deliver Healthy for Life and New Directions Mothers programs, which together focus on child and maternal health care, early detection and management of chronic disease and men’s health.

Mr Snowdon congratulated the six award winners and said, “They highlight the innovation and leadership being demonstrated by organisations and individuals in addressing the Government’s targets to close the gap in life expectancy between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians.”
