Celebrating NAIDOC Week 2021

NAIDOC Week 2021 will be held from Sunday 4 July to Sunday 11 July.

This year’s theme – Heal Country! – calls for stronger measures to recognise, protect, and maintain all aspects of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture and heritage.

Events will be held around Australia during the week to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

We at Abbotsford Private Hospital support NAIDOC Week and our traditional owners; Whadjuk Noongar Boodjar in creating lasting change to Heal Country.
