Wurli Wurlinjang child and maternal/women's health program

 

Overview

The Wurli Wurlinjang child and maternal/women's health program focuses on preventative aspects of health, health promotion and education.

The program includes:

The program is staffed by three specialist clinicians: a child health Aboriginal Health Worker, an enrolled nurse, and a registered nurse (midwife). Antenatal and baby clinics operate regularly, attended by a general practitioner. Visiting paediatricians and gynaecologists conduct specialist clinics about four times a year.

The program is funded by the Federal Government through the Office of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health and the Northern Territory Government through the Department of Health and Community Services.
