Western Health supports First Nations self-determination
04 April 2023
Western Health's Board of Directors has issued a statement in support of First Nation self-determination, drafted by our Wilim Berrbang team in consultation with Aboriginal staff and members of the Aboriginal community.
Western Health acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of the land on which our sites stand, the Wurundjeri Woi-Wurrung, Boon Wurrung and Bunurong peoples of the greater Kulin Nation. We pay respects to Elders past, present and emerging. We are committed to the healing of country, working towards equity in health outcomes, and the ongoing journey of reconciliation. Western Health is committed to respectfully listening and learning from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and wholeheartedly supports their journey to self-determination.
