The Finance Team provides finance assistance and support to the organisation through accounts payable and receivable, payroll, budgeting and meeting the requirements of AHCSA funding agreements. The Chief Finance Officer also provides assistance and support to the AHCSA Members when required.

Admin and Facilities

Public Health, Primary Health Care and Data Team

This team focuses on providing evidence-based public health advice and supporting the provision of comprehensive primary health care by Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Services (ACCHSs) in South Australia. In general, the focus is on building and strengthening capacity within the ACCHSs, rather than direct service delivery.

Activities include providing advice and support for particular issues as they arise, helping with the development of systems for efficient and effective models of care, supporting continuous quality improvement at the local level, supporting the effective development and use of patient information management systems, and developing sustainable capacity within ACCHSs for particular health issues.

Member Support

The Member Support team aim to build the capacity of the AHCSA Members with a strong emphasis on governance, business systems development and workforce support through training, resource development and one on one assistance where required.


The Research Team demonstrates the importance of appropriate research for and by Aboriginal people across the university, government and non-government sectors. This is achieved by participating in research projects, presenting ethical research and coordinating the Aboriginal Health Research Ethics Committee.

Education and Training

The Education and Training Team have the pivotal role of coordinating and supporting the AHCSA RTO to deliver Comprehensive Aboriginal Primary Health Care training to Aboriginal Health Workers across Sector.
