Nganampa Health Council is an Aboriginal owned and controlled health organisation operating on the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara Lands in the far north west of South Australia. Across this area, Nganampa Health operates nine clinics, a 16 bed aged care respite facility and assorted health related programs including aged care, sexual health, environmental health, health worker training, dental, women’s health, male health, children’s health and substance abuse prevention. (See Programs)

The health service has a sustained national reputation for best practice clinical services, leading edge collaborative program research and development and for the collection of outcome data as a basis for ongoing evaluation. We employ over 120 staff, the majority who are Anangu residents from the Lands.

The main clinics are located at Iwantja (Indulkana), Mimili, Fregon, Pukatja (Ernabella), Amata, and Pipalyatjara while smaller clinics are located at Yunyarinyi (Kenmore Park), Nyapari and Watarru. The aged care respite facility is located at Pukatja. The organisation has administration offices at Umuwa and Alice Springs.

The Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara Lands cover over 105,000 square kilometres in the north west corner of South Australia. (See Location) It is home to almost 3,000 residents. The Anangu culture is still strong, and Pitjantjatjara/Yankunytjatjara is the first language. The scenery is spectacular and includes the Everard, Musgrave and Mann Ranges.
