The Northern Territory Government has released a new action plan to increase the number of Aboriginal Health Workers.
NT Health Minister Robyn Lambley says that the profession will actually disappear if we don’t act now.
The number employed in NT Government clinics has declined by more than 20 per cent, from 97 in 2003 in just 77 in 2013 and the total number of registered Aboriginal Health Workers in the Territory fell by about 30 per cent between 2000 and 2010.
Minister Lambley announced that Government’s Back On Track plan at the National Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Health Summit in Cairns recently.
