The Lowitja Institute launches initiative that links health and wellbeing to constitutional recognition for Indigenous people
Recognise Health is an initiative of the Lowitja Institute that promotes understanding of the important link between health and wellbeing and constitutional recognition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
The initiative has brought together a coalition of, to date, 117 non-government organisations across the Australian health system. With their particular perspective of health, these organisations have signed a statement in support of constitutional change. To read the full text of that statement click here.
The Institute is working closely with Recognise, the people’s movement to recognise Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in the Australian Constitution.
Recognise Health was launched at Parliament House in Canberra on 5 March 2015. To visit the launch page click here.
