Nganampa Health Council Strategic Plan for 2015 -17 has been released and can be downloaded from the link below.

Despite the challenges that we face, we have a series of achievements that have improved the health of our population. The strategic plan discusses how these achievements will continue and how the health care we deliver can be improved further.

For a number of years Nganampa Health Council has operated a scholarship fund to provide assistance to Anangu who undertaking tertiary studies.

Friends and staff at Nganampa Health Council have made donations to this fund.

We are pleased to announce that we have recently awarded a scholarship to a Pitjantjatjara man who is studying Medicine.

This is a very exciting development for us.

If you would like to make a donation to the scholarship fund, please contact us.

You can read about the work of Healthabitat here. Healthabitat has a long relationship with Nganampa Health. The work of Healthabitat is based on Nganampa Health Council's 1987 UPK Report into environmental health on the APY Lands.
We noticed that Anangu listen to a lot of music using USB sticks - especially when travelling in cars.

As a result, we have put all five UPK albums onto one handy USB stick.

If you would like one, please contact us.

Congratulations to Lee Lawrie who is Nganampa Health Council's first Aboriginal Health Worker Practitioner.

As well as working at Nganampa Health Council as a Healthy Lifestyle Worker, Lee is the coach of the Wintjalangu softball team that won the Premiership on Saturday, beating Pukatja by one run.

Nganampa Health Council has made some “Tjikita – Nyuntu Ngayuku Malpa Wiya” stickers. This motto translates to “Cigarette – You are not my friend”.
It is inspired by a true story of an Anangu man who gave up smoking by rolling cigarettes, holding them in front of his face and saying “Nyuntu ngayuku malpa wiya”, before throwing the cigarettes away.

Anyone from the APY Lands who would like some stickers should contact Nganampa Health Council.
