The Southgate Institute conducted a 5 year NHMRC project in partnership with six primary health care services (http://www.flinders.edu.au/medicine/sites/southgate/research/primary-health-care-and-community-services/cphc/cphc_home.cfm). A final report has just been produced detailing the strong model of comprehensive primary health care evinced at one of the project’s case study sites – Central Australian Aboriginal Congress Aboriginal Corporation. Congress is an Aboriginal community controlled health organisation in Alice Springs, Northern Territory.
The project found this service had the most comprehensive implementation of primary health care, and this report documents these strengths, highlighting the value of Aboriginal community control. The report was funded by Central Australian Aboriginal Congress, and authored by Dr. Pamela Lyon.
