Since 2008, the Aboriginal Health Council of WA (AHCWA) has hosted the WA Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Sector Conference.

This key event on the Sector calendar provides an important platform for delegates to collaborate on challenges, share learnings, celebrate successes, showcase new technologies, products, service and ideas to improve the health and wellbeing of Aboriginal people in Western Australia.

In 2024, the State Sector Conference will be held on Wednesday 1 May and Thursday 2 May and the WA Aboriginal Youth Conference on Monday 29 April, at the Esplanade Hotel in Fremantle, Western Australia.

The theme of the 2024 Conference is: “We are the Change - Breaking the Barriers".

An exhibition is a key feature at both the Sector Conference and the Youth Conference. 

Both Conferences rely on funding from National Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation (NACCHO), the Western Australian State Government and the generous support of our Conference sponsors and exhibitors. 

We look forward to seeing you at the 2024 Conference!
