Outreach Program: MOICDP

Increasing access to healthcare for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples with chronic disease. This program includes all Indigenous people with chronic disease, regardless of geographical location.

Chronic conditions account for 70% of the total health gap between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and non-Indigenous Australians.

The Medical Outreach Indigenous Chronic Disease Program (MOICDP) increases access to a range of health services, including expanded primary care for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples for the prevention, diagnosis and management of chronic disease, where chronic disease is defined as ‘a condition that has been (or is likely to be) present for six months or longer. The MOICDP is part of the Indigenous Australian’s Health Programme (IAHP), alongside Healthy Ears – Better Hearing Better Listening (HEBHBL) Program and Eye and Ear Surgical Support Program (EESS).

MOICDP Objectives:

  • Increasing access to multidisciplinary care in primary healthcare settings
  • Increasing the range of services offered by visiting health professionals to prevent, detect and manage chronic disease more effectively


In addition to provision of clinical services for patients, MOICDP funding can be used for:

  • Coordination and administration of these services
  • Travel costs, accommodation and meals/incidentals for visiting Health Professionals
  • Equipment lease
  • Host facility fees
  • Upskilling/training associated with the outreach visit
  • Cultural awareness training for non-salaried private providers
  • Orientation to communities
  • Professional support associated with outreach services
  • Program administration costs for Fundholders
  • Marketing and activities to raise public awareness of outreach services
  • Hospital services limited to surgical support services provided under the EESS program only

The Department of Health uses the Modified Monash Model (MMM) 2019 classification system to determine eligibility for service locations across Australia. Services supported through the MOICDP are delivered in MM 1 (metropolitan area) to MM 7 (very remote communities). The priorities are the treatment and management of chronic diseases, including:

  • Diabetes
  • Cardiovascular Disease
  • Respiratory Disease
  • Renal Disease
  • Cancer

The MOICDP supports outreach services provided by the following health professionals:

  • Specialist medical services
