Eight perceived roles of Aboriginal health workers in Central Australia were identified through consultations with practising and non-practising health workers, community members and other health practitioners; factors that impact on the role and differences between the perceived and actual roles are examined; specific recommendations concerning the role of the health worker include recommendations relating to administration, management and control of health services, policy development and planning, Aboriginal health worker education and male/female roles.
