KWHB's logo was developed in 1998 by Senior Aboriginal Health Worker Rob Roy Japarta of Kalkaringi.

Our Logo

The boomerang represents sickness. The shield represents the Health Centres. The shield stands protective against sickness as one.

The name of Jirntangku Miyrta “One Shield for All” symbolises the Katherine West Health Board charter to reflect that the one shield is representative of all people and language groups in the Katherine West region.

The Katherine West Health Board membership is drawn from the Lajamanu, Daguragu, Kalkarindji, Yarralin, Nijpurru, Timber Creek, Bulla and Mialuni communities and their respective outstations, including outstations serviced by KWHB Mobile Program namely: Dilinya, Djarrung, Innesvale, Fitzroy, Old Top Springs, Mistake Creek, Waterloo, Rosewood, Nelson Springs, Bamboo Springs, Bucket Springs, Bubble Bubble, Doojum, Marralam Outstation, Kneebone Outstation.
