Central Queensland Regional Aboriginal and Islander Community Controlled Health Organisation
Central Queensland Regional Aboriginal and Islander Community Controlled Health Organisation (CQ RAICCHO) provides support and outreach services to the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities in Central Queensland.
CQ RAICCHO was established by the Queensland Aboriginal and Islander Health Council to respond to regional challenges for community controlled health services in Central Queensland.
The service has a Regional Outreach Coordinator who works with all primary health care organisations in the area to:
- understand the health needs and priorities for the region
- that services are delivered to address the health needs of communities
- explore how outreach services can support existing service providers to meet the health needs of the community.
CQ RAICCHO has a range of programs and services including:
- Indigenous mobile health solutions project (Mobile van) visiting regional and rural centres, usually coinciding with community health days and school visits by the Deadly choices team
- Indigenous chronic disease program - aims to increase the provision of preventative and primary health care services with a focus on diabetes, cardiovascular disease, chronic renal disease, cancer and chronic respiratory disease.
The service assists with health promotion activities in communities including:
- Good quick tukka
- Deadly choices
- health checks
- traditional games.
CQ RAICCHO is a member of the Queensland Aboriginal and Islander Health Council.
