Murrumbidgee Local Health District acknowledges the traditional owners of the land on which we live and work. We pay respect to past and present Elders of this land: the Wiradjuri, Yorta Yorta, Baraba Baraba, Wemba Wemba and Nari Nari peoples.
Aboriginal Health Unit
The Aboriginal Health unit is responsible for promotion of Aboriginal Health and the provision of Aboriginal Health services across the Murrumbidgee Local Health District. It provides programs and services that are culturally appropriate and accessible to Aboriginal people and Communities. The Aboriginal Health unit also works with mainstream staff to enable them to more effectively plan and deliver high quality and accessible health services to Aboriginal people and Communities.
As well as providing a service to inpatients and clients individually, there are also a number of programs that Aboriginal Health staff within the Murrumbidgee Local Health District (MLHD) are trained in and responsible for implementing.
