Ngarra Jarra Aboriginal Health Program

Austin Health acknowledges the traditional owners of the land, the Wurundjeri people. We pay our respects to their Elders past and present.

Ngarra Jarra translates as ‘Healing’ in Woiwurrung language of the Wurundjeri People.

At Austin Health, we are committed to improving the health and well being of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People through ensuring equity in access to high quality, culturally sensitive health services.

Our Ngarra Jarra Aboriginal Health Program is here to provide you and your family with culturally appropriate support.

We also provide cultural advice and support to our staff.
