Inclusion is a way of working that ensures all people, regardless of their individual characteristics, enjoy the same set of rights. The DPV Health Inclusion Strategy guides us to provide inclusive services to our very diverse community and to improve health, wellbeing, and participation.
The first stage of the Inclusion Strategy focuses on five priority groups — Culturally and Linguistically Diverse people, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders, LGBTIQ+ community members, people with a disability, and women.
The Inclusion Strategy was developed in partnership with community stakeholders and sets out the framework to support future plans and implementation. Our priorities will stay flexible to meet community needs and be guided by the principles outlined below.
