Today is #IndigenousPeoplesDay.

Care provided in the community, by the community is the best way to achieve #HealthForAll.

This is how Budyari 🏥 is working with one of #Australia’s indigenous communities to make sure people get the care they need when they need it.
DYK: Too often Indigenous peoples do not have the same access to health care as other populations.

#PrimaryHealthCare is all about equity & making services available to everyone at all ages, right in their community.

Indigenous peoples have their own cultures, languages – and health needs. In #Australia, indigenous populations have a significantly lower life expectancy than non-indigenous populations. Prevention and health promotion in the community can help change this. #HealthForAll
Shannon Thorne, Budyari 🏥, says that understanding the culture of the indigenous people they serve is the cornerstone of their #PrimaryHealthCare services. The centre is empowering patients to look after their own health, the health of their families & communities #IndigenousDay
DYK: In the Americas 🌎, 11 million people speak indigenous languages. Reaching communities in their own languages is essential to deliver #HealthForAll. #IndigenousPeoplesDay
