Tiwi Islands Project

The Tiwi Island video is part of the Federal Government’s ‘Indigenous Australians’ Health Program’ (IAHP) which aim is to contribute to closing the gap in life expectancy within a generation and to have the gap in mortality rates for Indigenous children under 5 within 5 years.

The video is currently in development with the support of the Aboriginal Communities of the Tiwi Islands and with the Tiwi Islands Health Clinics at Julanimawu, Milikapiti and Pirlangimpi.

The video focuses on raising awareness in the community of the need to seek medical advice early from the local Aboriginal Health clinic and the need to take any medication as prescribed.

 

The video will be available shortly
