Aboriginal Health Worker – Child and Maternal Health

The Ord Valley Aboriginal Health Service has been providing critical health and support services to local Aboriginal people since 1984. Our ambition is to deliver socially, culturally, and financially accessible health care that supports communities in the North-East Kimberley to be strong, healthy and safe. The organisation operates on the foundational pillars of Aboriginal leadership, self-determination and cultural diversity that underpin and shape the way the organisation conducts its business.

The position provides comprehensive primary health care services to clients in the OVAHS clinic and when on outreach visits. The focus of care is on the needs of Aboriginal clients within the context of the person’s cultural identity and social circumstances.

Please note: Due to the nature of the Aboriginal Health Practitioner role, applicants must identify as Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander as a genuine occupational qualification in accordance with section 50 (d) of the Equal Opportunity Act (1984).
