cohealth is a not-for-profit community health organisation that strives to improve health and wellbeing for all and lead the way in reducing health inequity in partnership with people and the communities in which they live.
We have developed a unique model that provides a financially sustainable and impactful way to address social and environmental challenges and make a real difference.
Through the cohealth model we:
Care for individuals
We design and deliver high quality healthcare services in partnership with our clients. It enables individuals to have a say in how their services are delivered. By engaging clients in codesign they become active participants in their own health management. This in turn improves the services, programs and products we provide for the whole community.
Care for community
We use revenue from the most appropriate sources, including full fee-paying clients, to improve and expand services for all of our clients, particularly those from vulnerable communities. By providing healthcare services to the whole community, we break down the barriers between private and community healthcare, demonstrating the kind of health equity we want to see in society at large.
Care for society
We work towards health and social equity for all through our advocacy efforts and campaigns, focusing particularly on the people most in need. We are committed to fairness and equality and to making sure no-one is left behind. Everyone has a right to access high quality, relevant healthcare services.
