Environmental Health Program

Puntukurnu Aboriginal Medical Service Environmental Health Program works to assist with the assessment and modification of factors in the environment that can potentially affect health.  Covering the remote Jigalong, Parnngurr, Kunawarritji and Punmu communities, the program works to control preventable diseases through managing health risks in the living environment.

Our Environmental Health team provides education and promotion within community schools and to other community stakeholders.  Common environmental health services include:
