The National Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation (NACCHO) Ochre Day Men’s Health Conference provides a national forum for all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander male delegates, organisations and communities to share knowledge, design concepts and strengthen relationships that work to directly improve the health outcomes of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander men.

Commencing in Canberra in 2013, Ochre Day is an important NACCHO Aboriginal male health initiative. Ochre Day has also been held in Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth, Darwin and Tasmania. NACCHO has long recognised the importance of addressing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander male health as part of Close the Gap initiatives.

NACCHO identified it needed to raise awareness, gain support and communicate to the wider Australian public on issues that have an impact on the social, emotional health and wellbeing of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander males. The purpose of the Ochre Day conference is to assist NACCHO to strategically develop this area as part of an overarching gender/culture based approach.
