About NACCHO

The National Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation (NACCHO) is a living embodiment of the aspirations of Aboriginal communities and their struggle for self-determination.  Founded at a meeting in Albury in 1974, NACCHO is the national authority on Comprehensive Aboriginal Primary Health Care representing over 150 Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisations (ACCHOs) across the country on Aboriginal health and well-being.

Based in Canberra, NACCHO is governed by a board of community-elected Aboriginal leaders from every state and Territory across Australia.  Through employment, engagement, empowerment and social action, ACCHOS have become strategic sites for Aboriginal community development, by empowering Aboriginal people through self-determination.  They are a proven mechanism for Aboriginal people to take responsibility over their own health matters.

ACCHOs ranged from large multi-functional services employing several medical practitioners and providing a wide range of services to small services that rely on Aboriginal Health Workers and/or nurses to provide the build of primary care service, often with a preventative focus on health education.  The services form a network, but each is autonomous and independent, both of one another and of government.
