Closing up the gap

Date posted: 27 March 2014

The Ceduna District Health Services and Country North SA Medicare Local (CNSAML) promoted Indigenous health for Close the gap day on March 20, 2014.

In celebration of the day, Ceduna District Health Services held a community event in front of the Ceduna Hospital to provide support to Indigenous people in the far west region who have chronic disease. 

HealthTrack provided a free barbecue, fruit and vegetables for people on site between 11am and noon, while Better care coordinator Huma Aziz provided free health checks for patrons, including checking blood pressure and blood sugar levels.

Ceduna District Health Services has also developed a number of health initiatives and introduced infrastructure to provide a welcoming and culturally appropriate service to the Indigenous community.
