Honouring the contribution of Aboriginal women in health during NAIDOC Week

The Central Australia Health Service is celebrating the extraordinary legacy of Aboriginal women during NAIDOC Week, 8–15 July.

The theme of NAIDOC Week is ‘Because of her, we can’. We pay tribute to two strong Central Australian Aboriginal women, who worked in health and who, against all odds, became registered nurses in the 1960s.
