The Poche Centres for Indigenous Health are research institutes located within a number of Australian universities, established with philanthropical funding from Greg Poche and Kay Van Norton Poche. The Centres seek to leverage the 'best of the best' in universities, in conjunction with communities and governments, to seek solutions that address some of the complex health problems faced by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. Individually, the Centres conduct research into topics that include Fetal alcohol spectrum disorders, oral health, specialist medical, allied health, social and emotional wellbeing, child health, chronic disease, workforce development and health promotion.
The six Poche Centres for Indigenous Health are located in:
The Centres are supported by a national body called the Poche Indigenous Health Network, of which Professor Tom Calma is Patron and Chair. The first Poche Centre opened at the University of Sydney in 2008.
