These camps are what we have been waiting for. We are the experts of our own country and community and health. When we practice our culture and talk about our health on country we feel safe and proud. All of us are getting our health checks and the younger ones are looking up to us elders.
As part of our program evaluation we co-design research and collect data with our Indigenous Research partners at The George Institute.
One of our main aims with Camping on Country is to place our local leaders as the experts in co-designing their own health programs.
We always centre Language, Lore, Culture and Leadership in our program methodology.
We are the only ones who can Close the Gap. Solutions to our health problems must come from us.
We must design the solutions and work with Government to make our vision a reality. When our ideas and solutions are centred positive change happens.
