Health Care Model

Anyinginyi Health adopts a social com­mu­ni­ty devel­op­ment approach to deliv­er­ing pri­ma­ry health care ensur­ing Abo­rig­i­nal peo­ple have the right to afford­able, acces­si­ble and appro­pri­ate health care. Pri­ma­ry Health care has a broad focus on the social con­di­tions and envi­ron­ment rather than just health care ser­vice. Anyinginyi Health holis­tic approach is based on social jus­tice, equi­ty, com­mu­ni­ty inclu­sion and social accept­abil­i­ty broad­ly linked with the social deter­mi­nants of health. 

The inte­gra­tion of pre­ven­ta­tive mea­sures through pub­lic health aware­ness, edu­ca­tion, health pro­mo­tion and com­mu­ni­ty devel­op­ment are key to com­mu­ni­ty capac­i­ty build and to empow­er­ing Abo­rig­i­nal indi­vid­u­als, fam­i­lies and com­mu­ni­ty accept­ing self-respon­si­bil­i­ty for health and well­be­ing. When man­ag­ing Abo­rig­i­nal client care the three com­po­nents of fam­i­ly, com­mu­ni­ty and cul­ture are intrin­sic to good health outcomes.

The mod­el rec­og­nizes the strong role Cul­ture and Cul­tur­al Author­i­ty plays in a holis­tic approach to good health and well — being. The mod­el respects the diverse cul­tur­al lead­er­ship struc­tures and cul­tur­al iden­ti­ties of Abo­rig­i­nal peo­ple, fam­i­lies and clients. Cul­ture sets the foun­da­tion for Anyinginyi to strive to be com­pli­ant with main­tain­ing cul­tur­al respect and ensures the prin­ci­ples of cul­tur­al respon­sive­ness are con­sid­ered in the design & imple­men­ta­tion of health care. 

Our mod­el inte­grates Pri­ma­ry Health Care best prac­tice and Cul­tur­al best prac­tice – this is how we do business.
