Vision Statement

"We will expand upon our commitment to ensure our people 'The Sun Come-Up Mob', continue to have access to equitable and culturally appropriate primary health care services into the future. We will build the capacity of each of our communities to enable a health care service that delivers programs for and by Aboriginal people, and to ensure local problems are addressed through local sustainable solutions.  We deliver services and focus on the concept of Mind, Body & Spirit to address health issues at the community level'.

What we do

The Sunrise Health Service Aboriginal Corporation’s main purpose is to improve the health and wellbeing of the people in the region east of Katherine in the Northern Territory using a holistic approach that includes a high standard of medical care, the promotion of social justice and the overcoming of the sickness that affects so many people in our region. This is done through our health clinics and health education, mixing together traditional Indigenous culture and the best of mainstream medicine.

Most importantly, our approach involves community people taking part in controlling their own health.  Everything from financial management and governance, staff selection and service delivery priorities are directed by our Aboriginal Board and Community Health Committees.
