Organisations providing Indigenous primary health services are spread across all remoteness areas and states and territories of Australia. In 2017–18, 198 organisations reported to the OSR. Of these:
- around one-third (32%) provided services in Very remote areas, 13% in Remote areas, 23% in Outer regional areas, 20% in Inner regional areas and 12% in Major cities.
- more than one-quarter (28%) were in the Northern Territory (56 organisations) and nearly three-quarters (73%) of these Northern Territory organisations had 1,500 or less clients. This was followed by 42 organisations (21%) in New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory combined, where three-quarters of organisations (74%) had 1,500 or more clients.
- more than two-thirds (71% or 140 organisations) were Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Services (ACCHSs). The rest included 48 government-run organisations (36 of these were Northern Territory Government-run clinics) and 10 other non-government-run organisations.
