Meekatharra community voices shape local healthcare

The remote Western Australian town of Meekatharra has its fair share of challenges but having a say in the most appropriate primary care services is no longer one of them, thanks to the strong voice of the Meekatharra Aboriginal Reference Group (MARG).

By working closely with MARG, WA Primary Health Alliance’s Midwest team has been able to listen and respond to local needs by funding primary care services and health workers to deliver culturally appropriate, accessible and effective treatment and support.
