The Marmun pit stop risk assessment station program aims to provide a culturally appropriate health check service to respond to the specific health needs of Indigenous men.
The Marmun pit stop risk assessment station uses the extended metaphor of the body as a vehicle which needs to be maintained in the same way a car need to be serviced. Men are invited to health checks (termed 'pits') where their health needs are assessed and further recommendations for treatment ('service') are provided.
The program was developed by the Derbarl Yerrigan Aboriginal Health Service.
