Overview

The Medical outreach Indigenous chronic disease program (MOICDP) aims to increase access to a range of health services, including primary health for Indigenous people in the treatment and management of chronic conditions. The program also aims to increase the range of services offered by visiting health professionals to prevent, detect and manage chronic disease more effectively.

The MOICDP will focus service delivery on the following chronic conditions:

The Medical outreach Indigenous chronic disease program measure will build on existing Medical specialist outreach assistance program - Indigenous chronic disease (MSOAP-ICD) and Urban specialist outreach assistance program (USOAP) services and establish new services which are to focus on the prevention, detection and management of complex and chronic conditions in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in urban, rural, regional, remote and very remote communities.

Funding is available to service providers to support the cost of providing outreach services.
