For nearly 20 years, general and acute care physician Dr Simon Quilty has witnessed up-close the poverty that inflicts indigenous communities in the Northern Territory. The conditions are exacerbated by systems failures and lack of health care. Despite the incredible challenges, there are opportunities. Dr Quilty commends the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons’ attempts to encourage surgeons to work in remote parts of the country. Dr Quilty has been instrumental with Purple House, an initiative which provides Aboriginal communities with much needed medical and social support.
