Anyinginyi Health Abo­rig­i­nal Cor­po­ra­tion (AHAC) pro­vides pri­ma­ry health care ser­vices to Abo­rig­i­nal peo­ple of Ten­nant Creek and four small communities.

Estab­lished in 1984 as Anyinginyi Con­gress Abo­rig­i­nal Cor­po­ra­tion, in 2003 we under­went a name change to become Anyinginyi Health Abo­rig­i­nal Cor­po­ra­tion. That year also saw an expan­sion of ser­vices out­side of Ten­nant Creek.

Anyinginyi remains focussed on our cen­tral objec­tive. That is to relieve the pover­ty, sick­ness, dis­em­pow­er­ment, seri­ous social and eco­nom­ic dis­ad­van­tage, and dys­func­tion that affects the Abo­rig­i­nal pop­u­la­tion of the Region.

Com­mu­ni­ty con­trolled and gov­erned by a board of direc­tors, four ser­vice sec­tions make up the organisation: 

  • Health Ser­vices Section
  • Piliy­intin­ji-ki Stronger Fam­i­lies Section
  • Pub­lic Health Section
  • Cor­po­rate Ser­vices Section

Anyinginyi ser­vice deliv­ery area totals almost 150,000 square km. It stretch­es north of Ten­nant Creek to Elliott, east­ward almost to the Queens­land bor­der and south to Ali Curung. We pro­vide ser­vices to over 7500 people.

Our Vision
