Nganampa Health Council
What does this organisation do?
AMRRIC (Animal Management in Rural and Remote Indigenous Communities) is a not-for-profit charity that uses a One Health approach to coordinate veterinary and education programs in Indigenous communities.
Our One Health approach recognises the inextricable links between human, animal and environmental health and well being. By working with remote Indigenous communities to improve the health of their animals, we are helping to create healthier, safer and happier communities.
Low income families and the long term unemployed
Employment is a significant factor in our wellbeing. Employment provides financial independence, improves our physical and mental health, expands our social networks and builds our skills.
On the flip side, long term unemployment or underemployment negatively impacts our wellbeing. It contributes to poor mental and physical health, social isolation and poverty. And it can negatively impact the wellbeing of our children.
Communities experiencing locational disadvantage
Where people live affects their access to social and economic opportunities and therefore their relative advantage or disadvantage. Some South Australian communities have entrenched disadvantage.
