All around the country during the week of 18-24 February people will be showing their support for a referendum on a First Nations Voice to Parliament.
A Voice to Parliament will give Indigenous communities a route to help inform policy and legal decisions that impact their lives. Giving people a say will lead to more effective results. Embedding a Voice in the Constitution would recognise the special place of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in Australia’s history.
A Voice to Parliament can lead to raised awareness of Indigenous health issues, and guide policy in taking action to address them. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people experience an increased prevalence of liver disease and are many times more likely to be diagnosed with viral hepatitis than non-Indigenous Australians.
LiverWELL supports a Voice to Parliament and is committed to assisting Indigenous Communities in improving their health and wellbeing.
