NAIDOC Week 2016

National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee (NAIDOC) Week 2016 runs from 3-10 July and is an opportunity for all Australians to come together to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. The Lung Foundation recognises the burden of chronic lung disease in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, particularly in rural and remote regions. We have worked hard to develop resources for both patients and health professionals, partnering with relevant organisations and gained input from and featured Aboriginal people in our resources. Available resources are listed below and can be accessed via our website:

  • COPD Action Plan
  • Lung disease flipcharts
  • Indigenous talking board
  • Love Your Lungs, Be Smoke Free videos
  • Let’s Yarn About Lung Cancer DVDs
  • Indigenous lung cancer awareness pin
