The National Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation (NACCHO) is the national leadership body for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health in Australia. NACCHO provides advice and guidance to the Australian Government on policy and budget matters while advocating for community-developed health solutions. NACCHO’s 144 members (Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisations) operate in over 300 clinics across Australia, delivering holistic, comprehensive and culturally competent primary healthcare services initiated and operated by local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. The sector is Australia’s largest employer of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, with well over half of its 6,000 staff being Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander.
