Bila Muuji Aboriginal Corporation links
The outback and remote communities face a number of challenges in accessing the same health services that many town and city dwellers may take for granted. The long distances for many of the community members, inadequate transport and lack of skilled health workers are just a few of the problems.
The Bila Muuji Aboriginal Corporation Health Services Incorporated comprises Aboriginal Community Controlled Medical Services from Brewarrina, Bourke, Coomealla, Coonamble, Dubbo, Forbes, Orange and Walgett and we are very active in trying to address the health inequality in each of our local communities. Our approach is to “provide health services addressing not just the physical well-being of the individual but also the social, emotional and cultural well-being of the whole community”.
The services that the members of Bila Muuji provide their communities are extremely important. It is amazing what these community based health providers achieve given the challenges. Their services include health promotion, disease prevention, substance misuse, men’s & women’s health, children and aged services, mental health, clinical & disability services, dental & hospital as well as addressing the issue of poverty within the Aboriginal communities.
