CRANAplus Welcomes the Apology to Australia’s Indigenous Peoples

28 Jan 2010

CRANAplus is eager to work with the Fed­er­al Gov­ern­ment as we all address the inad­e­qua­cies in health, hous­ing and edu­ca­tion for Indige­nous people.

The set­ting of tar­gets is a great step. Enough is enough, it’s time we work with com­mu­ni­ties to Close the Gap” said Christo­pher Cliffe, Pres­i­dent of CRANAplus.

Vice Pres­i­dent of CRANAplus, Asso­ciate Pro­fes­sor Sue Kildea states that Remote area nurs­es and mid­wives know only too well that if the next steps are not led by the Abo­rig­i­nal and Tor­res Strait Island peo­ple them­selves then the efforts will be wast­ed. How­ev­er, we have an extra­or­di­nary oppor­tu­ni­ty to make a dif­fer­ence and we are keen to get started.”

Using the knowl­edge and exper­tise of mem­bers already work­ing in remote loca­tions, CRANAplus looks for­ward to its piv­otal role in the steps ahead.
