The Queensland Aboriginal and Islander Health Council (QAIHC) is a leadership and policy organisation. We were established in 1990 and are the peak organisation representing all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Community Controlled Health Services (CCHS) in Queensland at both a state and national level.
The QAIHC Membership is comprised of CCHS located throughout Queensland. Nationally, we represent Queensland through its affiliation and Membership on the board of the National Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation (NACCHO).
Our Membership is dedicated to achieving improved Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health outcomes in Queensland through the delivery of comprehensive and culturally appropriate primary health care. QAIHC’s role is to support our Membership through sector development activities that are focused on building capacity and capability and through policy and research related activities that gather evidence to improve public policy and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health investment in Queensland.
QAIHC actively facilitates the contribution of our Members who are leaders and experts in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health through QAIHC Taskforces. Our Members determine our work program and policy positions through their participation in committees, taskforces and on the Board.
