City of Greater Geraldton Indigenous environmental health worker program

 

Overview

The primary aim of this program is to improve environmental health outcomes in Aboriginal communities in the City of Greater Geraldton. The program provides services to tenants in the Geraldton township as well as to about ten communities in the surrounding area, including Kardaloo, Pia, Mount Magnet and Meekatharra.

The program addresses issues concerning water, sewerage and rubbish disposal in collaboration with relevant agency services and householders. It also incorporates limited pest treatments, dog health and health promotion programs. One of the activities of the program is to teach members of local communities how to maintain a clean house, a clean property and a healthy environment; and how this contributes to and improves overall health and wellbeing.

The program requires regular liaison with other environmental health practitioners and agencies to deliver services, in particular with Bundiyarra Aboriginal Community Aboriginal Corporation.
