Sunrise Health Service

 

Description

The Sunrise Health Service is a not-for-profit organisation providing quality primary health care services to the Aboriginal communities of Barunga, Wugularr, Manyallaluk, Bulman, Mataranka, Jilkminggan, Minyerri, Ngukurr and Urapunga in the Northern Territory (NT). Community outstations also have access to health care services provided by Sunrise Health Service.

The name Sunrise refers to a custom of the region to self-describe those living east of the Stuart Highway, in the NT as the Sunrise or Sun-come-up mob. It is a term that is culturally inclusive, as well as expressive of the hopes that are held for Sunrise Health Service.

The service is advised by Community Health Committees to ensure program are planned and delivered in a culturally appropriate way so they encourage local ownership. Services provided by Sunrise include:
