Culturally Safe Healthcare

Resources and strategies to deliver care that is culturally safe for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women and their families

Why is it a Hot Topic?

All our member health services are committed to providing culturally safe healthcare to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women and children accessing their services. However, racism, bias, and prejudice towards Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people continues to create culturally unsafe environments, causing trauma, decreasing engagement in care, and preventing healing or effective care. WHA is sharing important content to build awareness and address some of the inequity that exists in maternity care throughout Australia.
