Aboriginal Health

Improving the health of Aboriginal people is our priority.

Our Aboriginal health staff work in the community to support Healthy Eating and Active Living Programs; cancer screening awareness and accessibility; and sexual health and hepatitis B and C prevention and treatment. We also work with Aboriginal young people to improve their health and wellbeing.

Aboriginal Go4Fun

Go4Fun is a free program for NSW children aged 7 to 13 who are above a healthy weight, and their families. Run by trained health and community professionals, it's a fun way to build self-esteem and learn about eating well, staying active and living a healthy life.

Go4Fun takes place during school terms (usually after school), with sessions running once a week for two hours, over a ten-week period.

Aboriginal Go4Fun has been culturally adapted for Aboriginal Children and their families. It is run in partnership with Sydney Local Health District and the National Centre of Indigenous Excellence.
