The congress medical service commenced in Alice Spring in 1975 employing a doctor and an Aboriginal health worker to work alongside.
The service is moving from strength to strength with two new clinics opened in Sadadeen and Larapinta continuing to provide culturally appropriate community-controlled services that are welcoming for Aboriginal people.
Congress today is an organisation made up of over 350 full-time, part-time and casual employees that spends about 5% of total payroll on training and development of its people.
It has recently increased its Aboriginal workforce to 51%, established an Aboriginal Health Practitioner Training Program, implemented internal Indigenous Mentoring Program, has a Cadetship Program and currently has almost 50 staff members undertaking VET qualifications.
