Indigenous Program

WAAC's Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander (ATSI) Community Development Project is focused on providing holistic culturally appropriate services for and with the ATSI community in the metropolitan area and rural and remote areas of Western Australia. The principles of the program are:

  • Holistic Health – Physical well-being, social, emotional and cultural well-being the whole of community.
  • Self determination – Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people involved in all aspects of health care delivery – planning and development, implementation and evaluation.
  • Right to for ATSI people to choose different models of health care with health programs tailored to fit the needs of the broader ATSI community groups.
  • Health care services are culturally appropriate and are accessible.

Our primary target groups are

  • HIV Positive Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders (ATSI)
  • Heterosexual ATSI Women
  • Heterosexual ATSI Men

Secondary target group:

  • ATSI Sistergirls/Trangender
  • ATSI Gay Men
  • Whole of ATSI community

The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Community Development Project provides tailored HIV/AIDS education and prevention knowledge and training in ATSI community organisations and non-Aboriginal organisations.

We encourage and pursue joint initiatives with Aboriginal agencies and non-Aboriginal agencies with the aim of increasing capacity of ongoing appropriate interagency responses and commitment.
