Our vision for reconciliation

True Relationships and Reproductive Health’s vision for reconciliation is an Australian society which upholds Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people’s perspectives and unique place in Australian history and social fabric through respectful relationships in all of their diversity, and which creates opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to have equality of access to sexual and reproductive health, and to safe and respectful relationships.

In the achievement of this vision, our role is to support the delivery of quality services to Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and engage in the development of culturally appropriate policies and practices which reflect the needs and aspirations of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.

We explicitly recognise the importance of partnerships with communities and community controlled organisations to achieve this vision. True aims to eliminate obstacles that prevent Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples from enjoying positive sexual and reproductive health outcomes and safe and respectful relationships.
