The Partners in Culturally Appropriate Care (PICAC) initiative was developed in 1997. The PICAC project was developed to improve the capacity of aged care services to respond to the differing needs of older people in residential aged care facilities from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.

PICAC coordinators work to improve the partnership between aged care providers, culturally and linguistically diverse communities and the Australian Government Department of Health and Ageing to ensure that aged care service providers are informed on best practice in the delivery of culturally appropriate care.
The PICAC Program provides funding for eight organisations, one in each state and territory. For further information on the PICAC project and other initiatives of the Department of Health & Ageing visit: https://www.health.gov.au/initiatives-and-programs/partners-in-culturally-appropriate-care-picac
