Central Australian Aboriginal Congress Regional Eye Health Program



The Central Australian Aboriginal Congress Regional Eye Health Program aims to enhance the eye health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in Central Australia by consolidating eye health service delivery in the region.

A Regional Eye Health Coordinator (REHC) is employed through the program and is responsible for coordinating visits provided by the Brien Holden Vision Institute through the Visiting Optometry Scheme. The REHC supports the visiting optometrist to travel to 27 remote locations throughout the Northern Territory (NT), ensuring that the visiting service is utilised to its full potential. The REHC is the key point of contact for clinics and community members in each location.
