Who are we?

The Collaborative is the national health peak representing multicultural health and wellbeing issues through a formal membership structure, which includes consumer and carers, health and wellbeing/social care services, practitioners, and researchers.

The Collaborative also includes members from ‘mainstream’ organisations providing services to our communities and, as affiliates, national health peaks.

Our primary objective is to address systemic health inequities and work toward improved health and wellbeing outcomes for individuals and communities.
