About us

CheckUP is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to better health for people and community and people who need it most.

Through our current range of health programs and initiatives, CheckUP has an established footprint in 179 communities across Queensland; delivering over 130,000 occasions of service per year, with over 80% of those services targeting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. Our immediate and continuing priority is tackling health inequities for rural and remote communities and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. We also recognise that there are other communities and populations who also continue to experience poorer health outcomes and for whom access to quality health care is extremely limited. Where we can, we intend to build on our current initiatives in order to realise our vision of “Better Health for people and communities that need it most”.

This vision will not be achieved in isolation. It will require ongoing collaboration, not just within the healthcare sector but cross-sector collaboration incorporating education, early childhood, social and community services sectors as well as individuals, families and communities working together to make the health of our communities a priority.
