Aboriginal Health Council of Western Australia (Tomorrow's Dream)

 

Overview

The Aboriginal Health Council of Western Australia (AHCWA) is the peak body for the 22 Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Services (ACCHSs) in Western Australia (WA). They are an evolving organisation that acts as a forum to lead the development of Aboriginal Health policy, to influence and monitor performance across the health sector, to advocate for and support community development and capacity building in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities in WA.

The Tackling Indigenous Smoking Team at AHCWA run a program within the Perth Metropolitan and surrounding areas, as well as providing Tobacco Cessation Support to AHCWA’s Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Service (ACCHS) Members.

To help promote the smoke free message AHCWA have built on their previous Tomorrow's Dream brand with the message of Quit today for a healthier tomorrow – Promoting smoke-free Western Australian Aboriginal communities…Protecting our next generation. The team work in partnership with other health and social service providers and educational institutions to deliver tobacco cessation support, health promotion and education activities.
