PHN prepares to celebrate NAIDOC Week

June 30, 2022

‘Get Up! Stand Up! Show Up!’ – this year’s National NAIDOC Week calls for us to continue the fight for positive change. From 3 to 10 July 2022, NAIDOC Week celebrations will be held across Australia to educate, drive change, and celebrate the oldest, continuous living culture on earth.

This NAIDOC Week, Darling Downs and West Moreton PHN continues its commitment to ensuring the voices of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples are heard and considered in all of our decisions and actions.

On this foundation of shared understanding and respect, our PHN’s role is to create positive change by partnering with our health service partners to close the gap. We work towards closing the gap not only in terms of health outcomes, but the gap between aspiration and true action. To read how we are driving change and working towards reconciliation, read our Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan.

The PHN team will be attending events across the region during NAIDOC Week. Find out below what events are on in your area.
