Monash Health is committed to improving the health outcomes of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. This can only be achieved by working in partnership with the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community, providing opportunities and promoting and building mutual respect. This is embedded in Monash Health’s Strategic Plan, Reconciliation Action Plan and Aboriginal Employment Plan.
