“The voice for health and wellbeing through patient advocacy and self-determination for now and into the future”
The Aboriginal Medical Service Cooperative Limited (AMS Redfern), based in Redfern New South Wales, provides culturally appropriate health care to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. We acknowledge our history and unseeded sovereignty, value our cultural strength, solidarity and kinship and above all our right to self-determination.
Our services are delivered and predominately managed by professional Aboriginal staff who are experienced with and sensitive to the needs of our community.
We are a multi-functional non-for-profit organisation that delivers a broad range of services and community programs.
We see health as: “Not just the physical wellbeing of the individual but the social, emotional and cultural wellbeing of the whole community, this is a whole-of-life view and also includes the cyclical concept of life-death-life” (National Aboriginal Health Strategy 1989)
