Aboriginal group to take health concerns to UN

Extract from Australian Broadcasting Corporation - ABC Online, on 2 May 2004


The National Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation (NACHO) is to take its concerns about the state of Aboriginal health in Australia to the United Nations.

NACHO says it will make a presentation to the UN sub-committee dealing with the international covenant on economic, social and cultural rights this month.

Chairman Tony McCartney says he is hoping to prompt action from the Federal Government on the poor state of Indigenous health.

"What I'm hoping to achieve is to table our concerns to the international community and seek their assistance in being able to get the Australian Government to address these issues," he said.
