The Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia (NMBA) is proud to support the work of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Strategy Group for the National Scheme. Working in collaboration with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health sector leaders and organisations, National Boards, AHPRA and accreditation authorities, the Strategy Group aims to achieve equity in health between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples and other Australians.
In June 2018, the NMBA and 36 partner entities represented in the Strategy Group formally endorsed the National Scheme Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Strategy’s Statement of Intent. The Statement highlights our intent, and shared vision and values to close the gap in health outcomes by 2031.
