‘Collecting Stories’- Aboriginal Experiences of the Primary Health Care System in Northern Melbourne

‘Collecting Stories’- Aboriginal Experiences of the Primary Health Care System in Northern Melbourne

This project included a film and a booklet that enabled participants from the Aboriginal community to tell their stories, in their own words, about their experiences of primary health care services. Participants were able to provide insights into primary health care agencies, and how they can respond to or better meet the needs of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who are accessing these services.

These stories were collected on the land of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation.

The North East and Hume Whittlesea Primary Care Partnerships, in collaboration with Banyule Community Health launched the ‘Collecting Stories’ DVD at the Aborigines Advancement League in Thornbury on 6th September 2012.

The ‘Collecting Stories’ booklet is available here.

North East Healthy Communities acknowledges the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation as the traditional custodians of the land we work on. We pay our respects to their Elders both past and present and acknowledge all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the first people of this nation.
