Onemda VicHealth Koori Health Unit is situated in the Centre for Health and Society at the Melbourne School of Population Health at the University of Melbourne.
Onemda is committed to research and teaching that is underpinned by principles of Aboriginal Community development that will lead to long term improvements in Aboriginal health.
Onemda is ten years old and those years have been spent building the foundations on which programs are implementated. Onemda has developed a Koori participatory action model that has enabled the organisation to develop a sustainable and integrated approach. Community development, research and practice, and teaching and learning builds on key principles of Community engagement, respect for Aboriginal knowledges and capacity building.
An Onemda Decade: Ten Years of Progress in Koori Health, celebrates their achievements and what they hope to achieve over the next ten years.
