Mr Mohamed said it was quite appropriate to publicly launch the NACCHO Aboriginal Health app in front of 25 of the fittest Aboriginal males in Australia, because the new app compliments NACCHO’s Investing in Healthy Futures for Generational Change plan 2013-2030.

Research shows that if a young person is happy and healthy they will be able to get the most out of their education, build their confidence and their self-belief, and, hopefully, one day become a well-educated ‘Indigenous All-Star’ in the sport or employment of their choosing.” Mr. Mohamed said.
Mr. Mohamed is encouraging all  143 NACCHO members, and stakeholders to promote the NACCHO app to their 5,000 staff and over 100,000 clients so that our community members can really have Aboriginal health in Aboriginal Hands. In first few days of publication, the NACCHO app had over 1,000 downloads from the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.
