Reconciliation Week and Reconciliation Action Plan endorsed

May 31, 2021

This National Reconciliation Week and beyond, we seek to be brave in what action we take, and the ways we can continue to improve access to information about viral hepatitis and liver health with Aboriginal communities.

This year’s theme, More than a word. Reconciliation takes action, urges the reconciliation movement towards braver and more impactful action.

We are proud to share with you the Reconciliation Action Plan for LiverWELL has now been endorsed by Reconciliation Australia for 2021-2022. Download.

In the spirit of reconciliation, LiverWELL acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of Country throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea and community. We pay our respect to their elders past and present and emerging.

LiverWELL CEO Melanie Eagle said “LiverWELL is committed to an ongoing collaboration with Aboriginal Communities, acknowledging the disproportionate health burden carried by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples regarding viral hepatitis and liver disease.

Our Reflect Reconciliation Action Plan demonstrates our commitment to reconciliation and we will implement it through consulting with Aboriginal Communities and organisations and being a supportive and respectful partner, working toward better health outcomes.”

We are also pleased to now offer our vibrant Aboriginal Healthy Living Guide as a printed booklet. It has steps that Aboriginal people can take to look after the health of their liver and promote healthy food, drink, activity and wellbeing in their family and community. Exciting and colourful Indigenous art pieces feature throughout the Guide.

Contact us if you would like to order a printed copy of the guide.

We acknowledge the traditional owners of the lands where we work - the lands of the Woi-Wurrung Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nations. We express our gratitude to them for their continued care and curation of these lands and waters. We pay our respects to Elders past and present.

LiverWELL observes and honours the Kulin Nation's intrinsic connection to land, sky and water, and the creator Bunjil. LiverWELL is committed to being led and informed by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders on bridging health outcomes for communities and improving liver health.
