Generational change of Indigenous Australian health
Around the Campfire Inc is a registered charity established to help raise Indigenous health in Australia and promote reconciliation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians. Indigenous health in Australia in many areas is equivalent to that of 3rd world standards. Through our fundraising activities we are able to promote reconciliation, and aim to educate non-Indigenous Australians in Indigenous culture and history. The operational focus for Around the Campfire is the establishment of an Indigenous school nurse program to assist with primary health care and health promotion in Indigenous communities. The main health goal of Around the Campfire is to reduce chronic disease of Indigenous Australians and close the life expectancy gap. Our initial goal is to secure funds for a 2 year pilot program to show evidence we can improve health within the school and community population.
