Reconciliation Action Plan
Our vision for reconciliation is health equity for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. Our action plan provides direction and accountability.
Health equity for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples
Our Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) provides a framework for inclusivity across our organisation. It guides us in growing our understanding of Indigenous people, history and culture, and informs all our activities supporting the interests of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
Since 2009, the RAP has been providing the ANMF with direction and accountability, helping us stay on track and take steps towards achieving our vision for reconciliation: health equity for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
We actively work toward reconciliation by building relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander nurses, midwives, carers and the broader community. By working together, we aim to identify opportunities and support the growth of Indigenous nurses, midwives and carers.
Fighting for health equality
We are committed to keeping the health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people on the national agenda. The RAP helps us act on our commitment, guiding us in our fight for equal recognition, respect and access to the health and economic benefits most Australians take for granted.
