No. 34 Aboriginal Health Service

No 34 Aboriginal Health Service is Located at 34 Alexandra Road Ulverstone. Rural Health Tasmania is committed to working in partnership with the Aboriginal community, organisations and health care providers to improve the health and well-being of our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people experience a higher incidence of chronic health conditions such as heart disease, diabetes and renal (kidney) disease than the rest of the Australian population.

They have a higher death rate than other Australians, resulting in a gap in life expectancy. Life expectancy of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people at birth is 15-20 years lower when compared to the rest of the Australian population. Rural Health Tasmania is committed to closing the Gap in life expectancy for Aboriginal peoples. For more information on Aboriginal programs and services call (03) 6417 6080
