How We Help
For 40 years, Central Australian Aboriginal Congress has provided support and advocacy for Aboriginal people in the struggle for justice and equity.
Since that time, Congress has expanded to become the largest and oldest Aboriginal community-controlled health organisation in the Northern Territory.
Congress provides a comprehensive primary health care service to the Aboriginal community of Alice Springs and to outstations within a 100-km radius, and auspices the health services in five remote Central Australian communities.
Within Congress are nine branches and a regional health services division, each providing unique and innovative programs and services to provide holistic primary health care to the community.
As a culturally-appropriate service, Congress has an holistic approach to healthcare, taking into account not just a person’s physical health, but their social and emotional health as well as recognising the importance of the cultural wellbeing of our clients’ communities.
