Just down the road from my first stop in Alice Springs and I’m at Central Australian Remote Health Development Services (CARHDS).

CARHDS is the only training and development organisation in Central Australia whose primary focus is on remote health services. CARHDS provides two main services: remote area health development services, which develops the capacity of Aboriginal people and health professionals to improve community health outcomes and to increase effective Aboriginal control over primary health care service delivery, and in-service primary health care education to meet the needs of Aboriginal Health Workers/Practitioners & Aboriginal staff and board members associated with the health clinics and medical centres. .

CARHDS provides accredited and non-accredited health-development education and resources in remote areas of the Northern Territory, Queensland, South Australia and Western Australia. If you’d like to find out more about CARHDS and what they do, check out their website: http://www.carhds.org.au/

Off to my next stop!
