National Aboriginal and Islanders Day Observance Committee (NAIDOC) Week celebrations are held every year to celebrate and recognise the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. NAIDOC Week is an opportunity for all Australians to learn about First Nations cultures and histories and participate in celebrations of the oldest, continuous living cultures on earth.
During this week, we acknowledge the resilience of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and their significant contribution to the wider community. We acknowledge the work of NCIRS National Indigenous Immunisation Coordinator Katrina Clark and the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Immunisation team. Click here to read how our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander immunisation team is committed to maintaining momentum and change for ensuring equity of access to vaccination for all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
We also acknowledge the NCIRS Cultural Governance Group, formed in late 2020, which provides advice to NCIRS and relevant stakeholders on how best to improve the uptake and timeliness of immunisation among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.
You can find out more about how to be involved and a range of events on the NAIDOC website.
