Our History

Wurli-Wurlinjang Health Service had its origins in the Kalano Health Service, which itself was part of an Australia-wide surge in the development of Aboriginal community-controlled health services in the early 1980s.

At that time Aboriginal people were not accessing the mainstream health system, for a variety of reasons. Lack of access meant the health system effectively discriminated against Aboriginal people. There was a need for a health service where Aboriginal clients felt welcome and comfortable.
