Join the campaign to take a stand against racism

‘I think if we were to do three things to help improve the health of Aboriginal Torres Strait Islander people in this country, the first thing would be to stop racism, the second thing would be to stop racism. And the third thing, of course, stop racism. And that’s really how we can make a huge difference.’

Professor Peter O’Mara, Chair, RACGP Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health  

The RACGP is a signatory to Racism. It Stops With Me – a national campaign that provides tools and resources to help people and organisations learn about and stand against racism. 

The RACGP does not accept any form of racism and strongly supports action to challenge racism within primary care settings and healthcare system.  

Our goal is for:  

  • every practice to provide respectful and culturally appropriate care to all patients  
  • GPs, GPs in Training, health professionals, practice staff and medical students to receive support to address any experience of racism  
  • RACGP members to be aware of, and advocate for patients who are affected by racism.

GPs must show leadership, provide support and advocacy where a patient, colleague, practice staff member or student is subject to acts of racism or discrimination.

The RACGP recommends all GPs and primary healthcare services join the Racism. It stops with me campaign and display resources that highlight their commitment and efforts to address racism.
