Northern Territory Australian better health initiative (ABHI) primary care integration project



The aim of this project is to improve the management of chronic conditions through informing policy and practice. As many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with conditions such as end-stage renal disease need to be relocated in regional centres to undertake appropriate treatment, this primary care integration project provides support to patients in their new locations.

Initiated in May 2008, this partnership project was funded through the Council of Australian Governments' Australian better health initiative (ABHI) agreement to improve service integration. It involved the Department of Health and Ageing, Department of Health and Families, General Practice Network NT, AMSANT, Healthy Living NT and NT Consumers.
