Lower Hume Aboriginal Health and Wellbeing

The purpose of the Lower Hume Aboriginal Health and Wellbeing Strategy is to implement initiatives that close the health gap and improve the health and wellbeing of the Aboriginal population in the Local Government Areas of Mitchell and Murrindindi.

The Lower Hume Aboriginal Health and Wellbeing Operational Plan (2014-2016) aims to provide a blueprint for action by the Lower Hume Aboriginal Health and Wellbeing (Lower Hume AH&W) project and outline in specific detail how the priorities in the Koolin Balit – Victorian Government strategic directions for Koolin Balit – Victorian Government strategic directions for Aboriginal Health 2012-2022 will be met, how member agencies and stakeholders are engaged and what resources will be required to do this. The Lower Hume AH&W Operational Plan 2014-2016 reflects the priorities of the Hume Region Department of Health, Koolin Balit Action Plan.
