Wangen Murduin® Aboriginal Health Services

Arche Health’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander (ATSI) health care team delivers well-established programs and services for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people within the South East, North West and Perth Metropolitan areas. The program provides culturally appropriate primary healthcare support, contributing towards closing the health expectancy gap between Aboriginal people and non-Indigenous Australians.

Aboriginal people experience a higher incidence of chronic health conditions such as heart disease, diabetes and renal (kidney) disease than the rest of the Australian population. The reported prevalence of diabetes for example, is two to four times higher in Aboriginal people than in the non-Aboriginal population.
