South East Aboriginal Health Care (SEAHC)

Chronic disease care for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people

The five main chronic diseases in our community are:

  • cardiovascular disease (involving the heart or blood vessels)
  • respiratory disease (involving the lungs and breathing)
  • renal disease (involving the kidneys)
  • diabetes
  • cancer

The South East Aboriginal Health Care unit advocates for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander clients living with these diseases and assists with funding for particular medical equipment, services and transport. We also offer outreach and care-coordination services.
