Umoona Kidney Project
The Umoona Kidney Project of the Community Point-of-Care Services unit of Adelaide was a program for the early detection, prevention and management of renal disease in the Umoona community at Coober Pedy. The project, which began in late 1997, was handed over to the community as a self-sustaining program, fully integrated into the Umoona Health service infrastructure in December 2000.
