New funds to support purple house and expand renal care in central Australia

Date posted: 18 March 2010

At the 2010 Medicines Australia Parliamentary dinner, the Minister for Health and Ageing, the Hon Nicola Roxon MP announced a funding boost of $1 million a year to expand renal care available for Aboriginal patients from remote areas of Central Australia.

Half of the funding will help fund the Purple House renal care facility in Alice Springs, with its funding increasing fromĀ from $350,000 annually to $500,000, from next financial year. The other $500,000 will enable the Western Desert Nganampa Walytja Palyantjaku Tjutaku Aboriginal Corporation to operate more renal facilities and to increase the level of clinical services at Yuendumu and other communities.
