Lurrtjurringa lan program



The Lurrtjurringa lan (joining together) program aimed to improve access to mainstream health services for Indigenous people in the Laverton region of Western Australia (WA). It also aimed to promote access and inclusion for Indigenous people in the community who are living with a disability.

The program commenced in 2006 and is a joint initiative of the Goldfields Midwest Medicare Local (now known as 360 Health + Community), the WA Disability Services Commission and the WA Health Department. One of the program's main activities was conducting regular health clinics with Aboriginal health workers in many communities within the Laverton region.
