Budget announcement assures future for the Lowitja Institute

Date posted: 21 May 2013

The Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet would like to congratulate our partner organisation, the Lowitja Institute, on successfully securing funding to enable them to continue their valuable work for the next five years.

The Minister for Tertiary Education, Skills, Science and Research, Dr Craig Emerson, and the Minister for Indigenous Health, Mr Warren Snowdon, have confirmed that the Lowitja Institute (the Institute) will receive $25 million over 5 years commencing July 2014.

After a public campaign to try to secure funding the Institute says the recent announcement is a big relief. Chief executive Lyn Brodie told the SBS that it will enable the organisation to continue research on critical issues affecting Indigenous health.

The Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet looks forward to collaborating with the organisation well into the future.
