Working to Increase Access to Services
A western style of health care and the predominance of non-Indigenous health professionals have largely worked against effective health care for Aboriginal people. Nunkuwarrin Yunti is, therefore, committed to providing culturally appropriate health care and community support services, and to influencing and overcoming barriers for Aboriginal people.
We are working in partnership with a number of organisations to increase access for Aboriginal people to a broader range of services including:
- Adelaide University for dental health care
- Aboriginal Housing Unit to establish cross-referral systems for coordinated care
- Forensic Health Services to provide a service to Aboriginal people in custody
