Health eTowns



The Health eTowns project delivered improvements in health and education outcomes for predominantly Indigenous populations in 20 towns, 41 remote communities and five hospitals across the Northern Territory, and six sites in the East Kimberley region of Western Australia.

These improvements included:

Health eTowns was one of fourteen programs funded by the Federal Government Department of Communications (formerly the Department of Broadband, Communications and Digital Economy) under the Digital Regions Initiative national partnership agreement. The Northern Territory (NT) Department of Health, in partnership with the NT Department of Education and Training and NT Department of Business and Employment, administered the project.

The Digital Regions Initiative was a $60 million initiative which co-funded innovative digital enablement projects with state, territory and local governments between July 2009 and June 2013.
