The Murdi Paaki region covers almost one third of NSW along the Murray Darling Basin in the north and west. More than 8, 700 Aboriginal people live in the region, in towns such as Broken Hill, Bourke and Walgett and in some of the more remote and isolated Aboriginal communities in NSW such as Brewarrina.
The Murdi Paaki Aboriginal Drug & Alcohol Network is a partnership between the Lyndon Community, Maari Ma Health Aboriginal Corporation, Bourke Aboriginal Health Service, Coonamble Aboriginal Health Service and Walgett Aboriginal Medical Service.  Each partner receives recurrent funding from Commonwealth Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet under a Council of Australian Governments initiative to reduce the harm done by alcohol and other drugs to Aboriginal communities.

The Murdi Paaki Drug & Alcohol Network’s Hub in Orange focuses on improving access to specialist drug and alcohol knowledge and supporting existing primary health care services to provide evidence-informed and culturally appropriate care through workforce development, capacity building and community development strategies.  Clinical services are provided by the Aboriginal medical services at the Network sites.
