Project timeline: October 2010 - March 2011

Brief description:

Maningrida Health Service Delivery Area (HSDA) is located in North Central Arnhem Land, and covers an area of 9,777 sq km. Primary health care system reform in the Northern Territory is providing an opportunity to critically examine current health service delivery and governance arrangements, and assess capacity to address or improve health outcomes for Aboriginal people. There is now commitment from both the Australian and Northern Territory governments to establish regional community controlled Aboriginal health services in remote HSDAs

Kristine Battye Consulting was contracted to develop a culturally appropriate regional health service plan across the Maningrida region
