New Aboriginal health board launched in the West Arnhem region

Date posted: 18 July 2011

The new Red Lily Health Board, based in the West Arnhem region of the Northern Territory, will give local Aboriginal people a greater say in health planning activities and priorities for their communities. It will engage with Indigenous health stakeholders to increase and improve the delivery of primary health care services in Aboriginal communities across the region.

The Minister for Indigenous health, Warren Snowdon said 'The establishment of the Board represents a significant step towards regionalisation and increased community control of the provision of health services to Aboriginal people. This will result in greater community control, better coordination and integration of health services and a reduction in high service delivery costs'.
