Many Aboriginal people in Victoria enjoy good or excellent health.

However, historical and ongoing environmental, economic and social inequalities have often resulted in poorer health outcomes for many Aboriginal people.

Care that centres on the person, the family and community lies at the heart of good Aboriginal health service delivery, early intervention and prevention. It is locally developed, culturally informed and empowers Aboriginal people to make the best choices about their health.
