Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet abstract

The Australian Indigenous and Torres Strait Islander health program was established at the Kirby Institute in 2007, with an aim to close the gap in the health disparity between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and non-Indigenous Australians. The key focus of the Institute's work is sexual health and blood borne viruses, working in collaboration with other key health sectors involved in substance use, offender health, and social and emotional wellbeing research.

This report outlines a number of projects being conducted by the Kirby Institute across Australia. Information for each project includes:

  • description of the project
  • Aboriginal community involvement
  • expected benefits to the community
  • investigators
  • collaborating organisations
  • funding body
