QAIHC Access and Equity Project

QAIHC Access and Equity Project

This was an important project in 2008 that addressed ways of estimating the funding required to close the gap in Aboriginal and Islander health in Far North Queensland. It was commissioned by the Queensland Aboriginal and Islander Health Corporation (QAIHC) and addressed three questions:

1. What is the current cost of primary health services in Cape York and Yarrabah?

2. What would it cost to bring these communities up to the current national average?

3. Consistent with the Prime Minister’s commitment, what would it cost to close the health gap?

The project was undertaken in collaboration with the Apunipima Cape York Health Council in Cape York and the Gurriny Yealamucka Health Services Aboriginal Corporation in Yarrabah.
