Malpa

 

Description

Malpa is a not-for-profit organisation which supports Aboriginal people to develop their own solutions to the health problems they face. The organisation name comes from the word malpa (which means friend or companion and is widely uses across the traditional groups of Central Australia). Malpa aims to provide a range of services, programs and education to respond to the significant unmet needs of remote communities afflicted by disease, in particular renal disease and childhood diseases.

Malpa engages in health promotion to help reverse the current trends in kidney disease. Underlying every aspect of Malpa is the desire to develop opportunities for dialysis patients, their carers and other Aboriginal people, to become deeply involved in the design and provision of services and to take responsibility not only for their own health needs, but those of their communities.

Malpa programs include:
