Northern Territory Aboriginal Environmental Health Program

 

Overview

The Aboriginal Environmental Health Program was established by the Northern Territory government to help Indigenous communities develop and maintain healthy, clean living standards and combat the spread of infectious diseases (e.g. diarrhoeal, acute respiratory and skin infections).

The aims of the program include:

The program has environmental health officers working in Darwin and the four regional areas of Nhulunbuy, Katherine, Tennant Creek and Alice Springs, to assist Indigenous communities in developing and maintaining healthy, clean living conditions, in order to reduce the amount of opportunities for the transmission of disease causing organisms.
