The NSW Ministry of Health is committed to funding Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Services (ACCHSs) for the provision of programs to improve the health and wellbeing of Aboriginal communities.

In 2021-22, direct funding of $29.9 million was provided towards Aboriginal Community Controlled Health and health related organisations (41 organisations) to deliver culturally safe and tailored health services. These services include:

  • prevention and management of chronic disease
  • family health
  • oral health
  • maternal and infant health
  • mental health and wellbeing
  • drug and alcohol prevention and treatment.

ACCHSs are required to report against a set of NSW Key Performance Indicators (NSW KPIs) as well as a national Key Performance Indicator (nKPI) dataset. The nKPI data set is published annually and is available at the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare.
