Delivering a Healthy WA
Aboriginal Health

Acknowledgment of Country and People

WA Health acknowledges the Aboriginal people of the many traditional lands and language groups of Western Australia. It acknowledges the wisdom of Aboriginal Elders both past and present.

Aboriginal Health works in partnership with Aboriginal communities and health service providers to ensure that Aboriginal people receive culturally appropriate health care that meets their needs.

Using the term - Aboriginal

Within Western Australia, the term Aboriginal is used in preference to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander, in recognition that Aboriginal people are the original inhabitants of Western Australia. No disrespect is intended to our Torres Strait Islander colleagues and community.
