The Nganampa Health Council vision is to provide and be recognised for providing Aṉangu with high quality, culturally appropriate, efficient and effective primary health care and related services. Nganampa Health Council will provide the highest standard of culturally appropriate primary health care, encompassing services to vulnerable individuals and communities. We focus on the provision of clinical, trauma and critical care to all of our clients. We do not discriminate in the provision of excellent care and aim to treat all clients with dignity and respect.


Nganampa Health Council is an incorporated Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health organisation controlled by local Aṉangu communities on the APY Lands.

Nganampa Health Council is an Anangu owned and Anangu directed organisation. It is overseen by an Anangu Board established according to our Constitution that sets the strategic direction of the organisation. The Board determines the organisation’s strategy and makes the key policy, finance and staffing decisions. It has an Anangu Executive Director who gives direction to the Medical Director and Health Services Manager. The various portfolios are operationally managed by the Senior Management Team (SMT).

The objective of NHC governance is to ensure our service provides and professionally administers sustainable high quality culturally responsive health services to our communities that leads to improvements in the health and social outcomes for the APY Lands.

The Board is chosen by and responsible to the Members who are all Anangu resident on the APY Lands.
