The Australian Digital Health Agency has joined more than 1100 other corporate, government and not-for-profit organisation in making a formal commitment to reconciliation through a Reconciliation Action Plan.

A Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) is about organisations, from every sector, rising to the challenge of reconciling Australia.

The agency has been working with the Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Sector to increase digital health understanding and use in services and for consumers.

Agency CEO Amanda Cattermole says the Agency’s reconciliation commitments include an emphasis on understanding and progressing digital health priorities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people living in rural, remote and metropolitan areas.
