Help to improve the wellbeing of Aboriginal communities

The Mootang tarimi (living longer) outreach screening program is helping to improve Indigenous health in the Nepean-Blue Mountains area of New South Wales, by providing a mobile health screening service run by a nurse and an Aboriginal education officer.

The service is run from a specially equipped van and provides screening and testing for chronic disease, health education, and general practitioner and specialist medical referrals. The service also provides links to other community and non-government organisations, to increase the wellbeing of community members and provide a more holistic healthcare service.
