What it does

The MOICDP provides funding to support a broad range of multi-disciplinary team based health outreach services that focus on the prevention, detection and management of chronic disease (primary and secondary care) for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

The MOICDP improves access to culturally competent clinical services by addressing a range of financial disincentives experienced by health professionals when providing outreach services for people in rural, remote and some urban areas of Australia.

The MOICDP supports a wide range of health services including those provided by medical specialist, general practice, Aboriginal Health Workers,  allied health workers and other health professionals.

MOICDP can also support:

  • Combinations of eligible services (i.e. multidisciplinary teams);
  • Coordination and administration of these services;
  • Cultural awareness and safety training for participating service providers;
  • Upskilling / training; and
  • Professional support that is associated with outreach services.
