Abstract: In Australia, western health services have been superimposed on traditional Aboriginal systems of health care. However, these traditional systems have survived despite the dramatic influence of cultural contact, and Aboriginal medicine is still widely practised in the Northern Territory today (Tynan 1979; Nathan and Japanangka 1983; Reid 1983; Soong 1983. Devanesen 1985, Maher 1999). The Northern Territory occupies one sixth of the Australian land mass. It has a population of just under 200,000 of which 28% are Aboriginal. The vast majority of the Aboriginies live in small remote communities scattered across the Territory.
