New-Map-_FINAL-CAAHSCmFor many years, the NT Government and Aboriginal community controlled health services have provided complex care to a vast catchment area which includes numerous remote Aboriginal communities in the Northern Territory, Western Australia and South Australia.

A significant proportion of the Central Australia population, in particular Aboriginal community members, reside outside the main towns of Alice Springs and Tennant Creek across a number of remote communities and out stations.

The remote location and pronounced clinical need, which make Central Australia a challenging and relatively unique setting for health care delivery, has also been pivotal in driving local clinically-based healthcare solutions through research and education.
