The website offers health providers a reference point for Aboriginal-specific services in Gippsland, and enable appropriate referrals. It is hoped the Gippsland Black Pages Aboriginal Service Directory will be widely used and shared between all service providers to assist with targeted and culturally-sensitive care.
The site also serves as a starting point for the development of relationships between organisations which we hope will lead to information exchange, transfer of knowledge, further discussion and a greater understanding around Aboriginal health.
The site also recognises, but does not include, the health services provided across the region by hospitals, community health centres and other services that are not Aboriginal specific but are available to all people. Many of these organisations provide Aboriginal Liaison staff who are able to provide assistance to access services.
