1. On the 9th of June 1973, 100 Aboriginal people took their future back into
    their own hands.

    Central Australian Aboriginal Congress began at a meeting held on 9 June 1973. Congress' initial aims were to be a voice for the Aboriginal people of Central Australia on
    all matters that concerned them.

  2. Today, we provide more than 90,000 episodes of
    care each year.

    Congress delivers high-quality, innovative comprehensive primary health care services to Aboriginal people in Alice Springs, outstations within 100 km radius, and auspice services in five remote communities.

  3. Together, through self-determination, our people will change the status of our health for a positive future.

    We continue to advocate for early intervention, evidence-based practice and preventative measures to ensure we contribute to Closing the Gap on Aboriginal life expectancy.
