The Telethon Institute for Child Health Research has been awarded a Centre of Research Excellence award to lead research into Aboriginal health and wellbeing. The National Health and Medical Research Council's (NHMRC) Centre of Research Excellence grant ‘From marginalised to empowered: transformative methods for Aboriginal health and wellbeing' will provide $2.5million funding over five years.
The main aim of the research will be to address the issue of why many programs have failed to deliver improved health for Aboriginal people.
The Director of the institute, Professor Stanley said Aboriginal people were best place to lead this type of research: "Aboriginal families deal with these frustrations on a daily basis. I am very proud that eight post-doctoral and doctoral Aboriginal researchers will be undertaking these important studies."
