The Central Australia and Barkly integrated eye health strategy is a collaboration between Central Australian Aboriginal Congress Inc., Anyinginyi Health Aboriginal Corporation, The Fred Hollows Foundation, Northern Territory Department of Health, and the Australian Government Department of Health.
The strategy aims to develop an integrated eye health service delivery model for the Central Australia and Barkly regions of the Northern Territory, resulting in a seamless and effective patient journey, especially for residents of remote Indigenous communities. As part of the strategy, a number of eye surgery intensives were conducted during the period 2007 to 2011, which significantly reduced the waiting list for eye surgery at Alice Springs Hospital. The collaboration is also working towards the establishment of a dedicated eye day procedure unit at Alice Springs Hospital.
