Chapter 7 – Approaches to funding in newly established ACCHOs
This chapter explores how a newly established ACCHO created a sustainable approach to funding their programs and services. ACCHOs are small to large sized businesses which provide a complex array of programs to their local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. ACCHOs strive to provide accessible, holistic, comprehensive, and culturally responsive health care to promote health and address the social and cultural determinants of health. This chapter also provides a summary of the funding challenges facing the ACCHO sector nationwide.
The content within this chapter was drawn from an in-depth case study with a regional newly established ACCHO that was reviewed and refined by the CREATE Leadership Group and strengthened with learnings and perspectives from the ACCHO sector nationwide.
