In recognition of NAIDOC week, RACMA acknowledges and celebrates the importance of the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
The focus for NAIDOC week this year is: “Always Was, Always Will Be.”
The theme recognises that First Nations people have occupied and cared for this continent for over 65,000 years.
RACMA is proud to have recently established its Indigenous Health Working Group (IHWG) to guide the implementation of the College’s first Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) – a roadmap to work towards increasing the number of Indigenous Medical Administrators, and improving the health, safety and education of indigenous communities.
This week is a great opportunity to participate in a range of activities and the College encourages its members to:
- acknowledge we all operate on Indigenous lands; and
- support their local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community.
