THE PROGRAM

At the Northern Health Network, the Integrated Team Care program is provided by a team of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Outreach Workers and Care Coordinators.

The team works in metropolitan Adelaide, Yorke and Mid North to assist Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to obtain primary health care as required, link them with additional Indigenous services, provide care coordination services to those with chronic disease(s) who require coordinated, multidisciplinary care, and improve access to culturally appropriate mainstream primary care.

Last year, the Northern Health Network successfully held five Closing the Gap community events across South Australia. Three events were held in metropolitan Adelaide in Salisbury Park, Old Reynella & Port Adelaide and two events were held in Country SA in Point Pearce and Port Pirie. The events were widely supported by the community and health professionals, with metropolitan events attracting in excess of 300 people. This year, for the first time, the NHN is combining all FIVE events into ONE event in central Adelaide.

Join us for SA’s biggest Closing the Gap Day at the Adelaide Showground. Closing the Gap Day is a FREE all-ages event which aims to bring together people from the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community to share information and take meaningful action in support of achieving Indigenous health equality by 2030.

The event will feature live stage performances from Nancy Bates & Ellie Lovegrove, MC Shelley Ware, comedian Joshua Warrior, as well as many activities for children including a petting zoo, jumping castle, face painting and more.
