We acknowledge the traditional landowners of Australia and we welcome all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to our services.
About Indigenous health
Many Indigenous Australians experience poorer health than other Australians to have mental health problems and chronic diseases such as respiratory diseases, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, chronic kidney disease, trachoma and rheumatic heart disease.
Closing the Gap (CTG)
Improving the health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples is a national priority. Closing the gap gives better access to Medicare and Medicine, extra free immunisations, coordinated care for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with chronic conditions and helps to reduce the high rate of smoking.
Our doctors provide primary health care for maternal and child health, arrange and manage support for people with chronic diseases, offer CTG for eligible individuals, and conduct regular health checks and immunisations.
