Budgeri Booroody, which means 'good and getting better' in the language of the Eora people of coastal Sydney, was the name of a two-day conference focusing on quality and best practice within the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community controlled health sector. The conference provided OATSIH-funded community controlled health services with the opportunity to come together at a national forum to share information about best practice and to hear about current research in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander healthcare. Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet staff, Neil Thomson and Ineke Krom, ran a HealthInfoNet cafe at the conference.

The centrepiece of the conference was the inaugural National Excellence Awards in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health ceremony (22 November, 2007). A total of 77 individuals and organisations submitted nominations for the awards. The six award categories were: Lifetime achievement in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health; Young leader in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health; Individual contribution to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health; Excellence and innovation in service delivery; Excellence and innovation in community health outcomes; and Working together – partnering for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health.
