March 19 - March 21


VACCHO invites you to join us for the 2nd VACCHO State-Wide Aboriginal Health Worker and Practitioner Gathering 2024 in line with the Aboriginal Health Workforce Project. 

This gathering is for AHW/Ps working in both an Aboriginal Community Controlled Organisation (ACCO) or in a mainstream health setting and participate in the VACCHO AHW/P Community of Practice. We are also inviting Aboriginal Nurses working within an ACCO to register to attend.

Our gathering is designed to facilitate the sharing of knowledge, insights, and experiences among Aboriginal Health Workers and Practitioners and Aboriginal Nurses from across the ACCO sector in Victoria. This event will provide a platform for you to engage with fellow professionals, learn from distinguished presenters, and participate in enriching cultural workshops.
