Aboriginal Workforce


SLHD is home to a significant Aboriginal population. Through its partnership with Redfern Aboriginal Medical Service (AMS) the Sydney Metropolitan Local Aboriginal Health Partnership and the local Aboriginal Community, SLHD is committed to closing the health gap between its Aboriginal and non Aboriginal population.
