Telethon Speech & Hearing is pleased to support National Reconciliation Week through recognising the history of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in Australia, their importance in our community, and their place in our hearts as we work together to create equality, equity and unity for all.
In working together with Aboriginal communities TSH is committed to using our skills, strengths and expertise in ways that recognise the special place, culture, community and history Aboriginal people have in our hearts, our services, our country and our future.
We are pleased to reflect on our recent success in working with the community to address otitis media in Aboriginal children in Roebourne. From 51% of children under 7 years old in 2011 down to 33% in 2016 we are making headway thanks to working with local elders. In partnership with and alongside Aboriginal people, recognising their wisdom, culture, community, history and future is the only way we create a better Australia for all.
