COVID-19 response framework for Aboriginal communities on the North Coast
Healthy North Coast is committed to ensuring regional leadership and response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The COVID-19 response framework for Aboriginal communities on the North Coast has been developed to offer guidance to health care providers to best support Aboriginal communities during this time.
Due to the risk COVID-19 poses for Aboriginal communities, Healthy North Coast’s Aboriginal Health Team has developed a coordinated approach in collaboration with Aboriginal medical services to reduce the impact of COVID-19 within Aboriginal communities.
The purpose of this framework is to increase preparedness and awareness around COVID-19 in Aboriginal communities on the North Coast; and to respond effectively and in a timely way when an Aboriginal person tests positive with COVID-19.
