VACCHO is the peak body for Aboriginal health in Victoria and champions community control and health equality for Aboriginal communities. We are a centre of expertise, policy advice, training, innovation and leadership in Aboriginal health. VACCHO advocates for the health equality and optimum health of all Aboriginal people in Victoria. 

VACCHO was established in 1996 and represents 27 Members. VACCHO is accountable to the Aboriginal community through our Membership. The majority of ACCOs are multi-functional services with health as a key component of their role, although some solely specialise in health service delivery. By joining together under VACCHO’s umbrella, ACCOs gain strength, share knowledge and speak with a united voice.

VACCHO’s primary principles of operation are community control and self-determination of health service provision to Aboriginal people in Victoria.
