About RACGP Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health

RACGP Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health was established on 19th February 2010.

The college recognises that improving the health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people is one of Australia's highest health priorities. General practice and Aboriginal health services are vital to improving the health and wellbeing of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and their communities throughout Australia.

The RACGP is committed to raising GP awareness of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health needs and their cultural context, and to advocating for culturally appropriate health delivery systems, which improve health outcomes.

The college also strongly supports the vital role of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health workers and people in partnership with general practice to deliver comprehensive health care.
