We are focused on ensuring that everyone has the right to equitable healthcare services!

At CheckUP, we recognise that despite Australia’s relatively high life-expectancy and low mortality rates, there exist significant health disparities among vulnerable groups. These include Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, those living in rural and remote areas, socioeconomically disadvantaged individuals, older adults, culturally and linguistically diverse populations, and those with a disability. Unfortunately, these gaps in health outcomes continue to persist and event widen for many of these groups and communities.

CheckUP works collaboratively at the strategic, regional, and local level to create healthier communities and reduce health inequities. Through our range of health programs and initiatives, we have an established footprint in over 180 communities across Queensland: delivering over 170,000 occasions of service per year to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and people living in rural and remote communities. As the jurisdictional fundholder for the Outreach Programs in Queensland, CheckUP has established a strong network of healthcare providers, including general practitioners, nurses, and allied health professionals, who deliver essential services to communities across the state.

We are committed to addressing the root causes of health disparities and working with communities to improve health outcomes for all. Find out more about our work by visiting our program pages.
