IHACPA Statement of Commitment to Reconciliation

The Independent Health and Aged Care Pricing Authority (IHACPA) published its Statement of Commitment to Reconciliation in August 2016. The document is a public commitment by the organisation to building and strengthening relationships between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and the broader Australian community.

The document includes:

  • An acknowledgment that the IHACPA office is on the lands of the Gadigal people of the Eora Nation;
  • Recognition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the First peoples of Australia;
  • That IHACPA will provide its staff an opportunity to learn about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples’ culture, history and connection to the land; and
  • Commitments to workplace initiatives and community engagement.

The Statement of Commitment has been signed by the Chair of the Pricing Authority and the IHACPA Chief Executive Officer.

IHACPA is also in the process of developing a Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) to outline the concrete steps which the organisation will take to translate the high level principles of the Statement of Commitment into action. The RAP will be published on the IHACPA website once it is finalised. More information on RAPs is available on the Reconciliation Australia website.
