Wardliparingga Aboriginal Research Unit
The Wardliparingga Aboriginal Research Unit (WARU) has many research programs for the management of chronic conditions, especially heart disease and diabetes, and their many complications.
The unit focuses on disparaties between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people with access to services, quality of care and health outcomes.
WARU's goal is to generate positive long-term change for Aboriginal families and communities in South Australia. WARU works with health services, both mainstream and Aboriginal community controlled, to ensure research is relevant, beneficial to the community, and delivers a strong impact on health outcomes as soon as possible. The clinical research gathers information from individuals and biological materials. WARU aims to build the capacity and strength of Aboriginal research in South Australia by:
- training Aboriginal people in research skills
- providing a network for sharing experiences as researchers and research participants
- deliver beneficial outcomes for the Aboriginal community.
WARU is based at the South Australian Health & Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI)
