We take a holistic approach to health and well-being, and are proud to be closing the gap in Indigenous primary care, one hel ... ping hand at a time. Danila Dilba Health Service is an Aboriginal community-controlled organisation providing culturally-appropriate, comprehensive primary health care and community services to Biluru (Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander) people in the Yilli Rreung (greater Darwin) region of the Northern Territory. The name Danila Dilba Biluru Butji Binnilutlum was given by the Larrakia people, who are the traditional owners of Darwin and Palmerston. In the Larrakia language Danila Dilba means ‘dilly bag used to collect bush medicines’ and Biluru Butji Binnilutlum means ‘blackfella (Aboriginal people) getting better from sickness’. Our logo was designed by Larrakia elder Reverend Wally Fejo. The story of the logo is: “The fish being in a school are excited when jumping around and convey to us our exciting, healthy life. The turtle represents the people going back to lay her eggs. The stick represents a hunting tool on how to find her eggs. The overall circle is like looking inside a dilly bag from above. The snake brings the threat of danger to our wellbeing and reminds us that we should always sustain ourselves and be on our guard for health.” Biluru is a Larrakia word that collectively describes Aboriginal people who are living in or visiting the Yilli Rreung Region. read more
