Aboriginal health is a key priority area for Adelaide Primary Health Network (Adelaide PHN). They work with their commissioned service providers to address health inequities and increase access to culturally appropriate services within the Adelaide metropolitan region.

In 2018, Adelaide PHN committed to establishing a Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) to support their journey to achieve their vision for reconciliation. They aligned with the Innovate RAP as set out by Reconciliation Australia, recognising their sphere of influence by working with the services they commission and establishing the best approach to implement actions to advance reconciliation with Aboriginal communities across the Adelaide region.

After 2 years of consultation with Aboriginal communities, local Elders, Adelaide PHN’s membership groups, stakeholders and staff, they are excited to announce that their Innovate RAP has received final endorsement from Reconciliation Australia.

Their Innovate RAP will span for a two year period from July 2020 – July 2022 and led by an internal working group with support from all portfolios within their organisation.

Adelaide PHN is proud to join over 1,000 other organisations across Australia that have formally committed to reconciliation through the National RAP program.
