Lions Outback Vision Van:

The Lions Outback Vision Van is a mobile eye health clinic that showcases how collaboration, innovation and technology can be harnessed to deliver services in regional and remote areas to close the eye health gap. The Outback Vision Van incorporates a unique service delivery model that:

  • Genuinely integrates collaboration across the health, corporate and community sectors;
  • Is the first mobile clinic in Western Australia to showcase the protocols and principals developed by the Aboriginal Health Council (WA) for outback service delivery in Indigenous communities;
  • Performs integrative care, avoiding duplication by filling the gaps in existing hospital facilities and Aboriginal Medical Services sites around the State;
  • Builds local capacity by up-skilling and training local health workers;
  • Harnesses a strong partnership between community, corporate bodies and government to meet the increasing demand for eye health services.
