Access to appropriate and well-maintained housing is a fundamental human right.

In 2008, the South Australian Government agreed to build or upgrade more than 400 houses in remote Aboriginal communities over a ten-year period, mostly on Anangu land.

The Paper Tracker monitors the delivery, maintenance and management of housing in Anangu communities. This includes staff housing.
