4 AMSANT ANNUAL REPORT 2016-2017 ABOUT AMSANT The Aboriginal Medical Services Alliance Northern Territory (AMSANT) is the peak body for Aboriginal community controlled health services (ACCHS) in the NT and advocates for health equity, while supporting the provision of high-quality comprehensive primary health care services for Aboriginal people. ACCHSs are incorporated independent legal entities controlled by Aboriginal people under the principles of self-determination. Their accountability processes include holding annual general meetings and regular elections of management committees which are open to all members of the relevant Aboriginal community. Community control enables the people who are going to use health services to determine the nature of those services, and then participate in the planning, implementation and evaluation of those services. AMSANT is committed to the principles of community controlled primary health care ~ as set out by the National Aboriginal Health Strategy (1989) ~ as essential to improving the health status of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. The principles encompass: a holistic view of health care which includes the physical, social, spiritual and emotional health of people. capacity-building of community controlled organisations and the community itself to support local and regional solutions or health outcomes. local community control and participation. partnering and collaborating across sectors. recognising the inter-relationship between good health and the social determinants of health. AMSANT.ORG.AU 5 AMSANT has 26 member services throughout the Northern Territory.
