Established in 1973, Central Australian Remote Health Development Services Limited is a Registered Training Organisation. It has been established to develop the capacity of Aboriginal people and health professionals to improve community health outcomes and to increase effective Aboriginal control over primary health care service delivery. CARHDS is directly controlled by and accountable to the primary health care industry to meet in service training needs as determined by the employer. It has a primary focus on providing regional support in order to improve access to, and equity in, the provision of in service training for all workers and boards with a particular emphasis upon Aboriginal health workers. CARHDS has expanded to include Top End communities since 2013.
