Health Care Model
Anyinginyi Health adopts a social community development approach to delivering primary health care ensuring Aboriginal people have the right to affordable, accessible and appropriate health care. Primary Health care has a broad focus on the social conditions and environment rather than just health care service. Anyinginyi Health holistic approach is based on social justice, equity, community inclusion and social acceptability broadly linked with the social determinants of health.
The integration of preventative measures through public health awareness, education, health promotion and community development are key to community capacity build and to empowering Aboriginal individuals, families and community accepting self-responsibility for health and wellbeing. When managing Aboriginal client care the three components of family, community and culture are intrinsic to good health outcomes.
The model recognizes the strong role Culture and Cultural Authority plays in a holistic approach to good health and well — being. The model respects the diverse cultural leadership structures and cultural identities of Aboriginal people, families and clients. Culture sets the foundation for Anyinginyi to strive to be compliant with maintaining cultural respect and ensures the principles of cultural responsiveness are considered in the design & implementation of health care.
Our model integrates Primary Health Care best practice and Cultural best practice – this is how we do business.
