Kambu Health - Queensland Map

Our West Moreton community is culturally, linguistically, economically and geographically diverse, encompassing both metropolitan and rural settings, with an estimated 12,000 of West Moreton people identifying as Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander.

Did you know 8.5% of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander persons in our region have a profound or severe disability? And that we have large proportions of people with cancer and other significant health implications in comparison to other regions in Queensland.

Understanding our community demographics and needs will help Kambu Health expand our services and support to meet the expectations and implications of such.

We currently have multiple sites in Ipswich and Laidley, with some of our community programs undertaking outreach to Boonah, Gatton and Esk as we work on expanding that reach and our service provisions to meet the needs now and into the future.

Reach out to Kambu Health today for a yarn!

Kambu Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Corporation for Health acknowledges the traditional owners of the lands on which we operate, the Jagera, Yuggera and Ugarapul Peoples. We recognise their contribution to the health of this place, their custodianship of the lands, waterways, skies, and all that live in it. We recognise their footprints and how their journey has provided our future. We also recognise all nations - those with historical connections to this region and those who find themselves here now and off country. We walk proudly in this place together with our culture.
