Recruitment Services

Medical Outreach Indigenous Chronic Disease Program

The Outreach in the Outback Medical Outreach Indigenous Chronic Disease Program  is funded by the Australian Government Department of Health and administered by Rural Health West. 

This program aims to increase access to a range of health services, including expanded primary health for Indigenous people. By increasing access to multidisciplinary care, the Medical Outreach Indigenous Chronic Disease Program (MOICDP) aims to broaden the range or services offered by visiting health professionals to prevent, detect, and manage chronic disease more effectively. 

MOICDP focuses on a multidisciplinary team approach to health care with a focus on five chronic conditions: 

  • Diabetes
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Chronic respiratory disease
  • Chronic renal (kidney) disease
  • Cancer
For further information on MOICDP, download MOICDP Service Delivery Standards.


Eligible locations for Medical Outreach Indigenous Chronic Disease Program services 
The Australian Government Department of Health uses the Australian Standard Geographical Classification Remoteness Areas (ASGC-RA) system to determine eligibility for service locations across Australia. Services delivered to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, supported through MOICDP, range from RA 1 (major cities) to RA 5 (very remote). 

The Service Delivery Standards require that all service providers funded under MOICDP demonstrate that they have undertaken appropriate cultural awareness and safety training, or be willing to undertake training prior to commencing service delivery. For further information, please go to Cultural Awareness and Safety Training.

The Service Activity Report for outreach services under MOICDP can be found here
