Abstract: Our people established the Central Australian Aboriginal Congress nearly 40 years ago: as such, it has developed into an important institution in Alice Springs and Central Australia, with a skilled workforce. We are committed to the future of our region. Congress has a clear vision as to what needs to be done to ensure there is a better future for our children and our town through rebuilding family life in Alice Springs and Central Australia. Congress is a large Aboriginal community controlled primary health care service in Alice Springs which employs more than 170 FTE staff including drivers, GPs, nurses, Aboriginal Health Workers [AHWs], psychologists, social workers, Aboriginal family support workers, pharmacists, a dentist, public health and other staff. There are five service delivery branches including the General Services branch, Alukura (women.’s heath and birthing), Ingkintja (male health), Social and Emotional Well Being and headspace (adolescent health). Congress provides more than 80 000 episodes of care each year to more than 6500 permanent residents and over 2000 visitors. We have attached a diagram outlining a summary of the program logic of Congress for further information.
