This Close the Gap day, Hepatitis Queensland is proud to announce the launch of our Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP). This is the next step in our reconciliation journey, building on initiatives and learnings driven by our Reflect RAP.

Moving forward, Hepatitis Queensland seeks to expand our partnerships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisations, communities, and individuals across all business activities. We aim to improve our capacity to offer culturally safe and appropriate services to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

The Innovate RAP will guide Hepatitis Queensland over the next two years across a range of developments, but we have summarised a few key outcomes below:

  • Increase Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people’s involvement in our project design and delivery. The recently established Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Hepatitis and Liver Health Advisory Committee is the first step towards this.
  • Establish and deepen respectful, trusting and mutually beneficial partnerships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and stakeholders within the health sector.
  • Increase representation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities across our workforce and, in turn, increase our capacity to ensure culturally safe engagement through our services.
  • Increase cultural competency amongst our staff and seek opportunities to learn local cultural histories.

Our Innovate RAP showcases the beautiful artwork, Vision, created by Nicky Newley-Guivarra, from Nigooli Designs. Nicky is a gifted painter and has beautifully represented the story of Hepatitis Queensland’s ongoing reconciliation journey, closely guided by her role as Hepatitis Queensland’s Cultural Liaison Officer.

Hepatitis Queensland looks forward to sharing the learnings of our Innovate RAP across the next two years.
