About the Organisation

Sunrise Health Service Aboriginal Corporation's (Sunrise) (ICN 4170) is an Aboriginal Community Controlled Organisation (an ACCHO). An ACCHO is a primary health care service initiated and operated by the local Aboriginal community to deliver holistic, comprehensive, and culturally appropriate health care to the community which controls it, through a locally elected Board of Management. Sunrise’s focus is to improve the health and wellbeing of the people in the Arnhem Land region east of Katherine in the Northern Territory. Sunrise operates nine clinics located across Arnhem Land. 

Sunrise works closely with various organisations in the Northern Territory, including the Northern Territory Primary Health Network (NT PHN). NT PHN provides support services to health professionals and organisations across the Northern Territory including support and assistance to health professionals relocating to the NT.

Sunrise’s guiding philosophy underpinning the approach to the provision of primary health care is articulated in the ‘Sunrise Way’ document (available on the Sunrise website). Sunrise is committed to ensuring our people - 'The Sun Come-Up Mob' - continue to have access to equitable and culturally appropriate primary health care services into the future. We will build the capacity of each of our communities to enable a health care service that delivers programs for and by Aboriginal people, and to ensure local problems are addressed through local sustainable solutions.  We deliver services and focus on the concept of Mind, Body & Spirit to address health issues at the community level.
