Help us reach our target!
Menzies School of Health Research knows that sustainable advances in health outcomes for Indigenous and Torres Strait Islander people are clearly linked to health services being delivered by Indigenous health professionals who understand the community and culture. As a result, we take a strong stand for building the next generation of Indigenous Australians to take up careers in health research and science.
In 2014, we have committed to provide a traineeship in child health for a young Indigenous Australian in our Child Health Division, which seeks to reduce the high burden of acute and chronic illness experienced by Indigenous kids, to improve their health and give them the best start in life.
To do this we need $30 000 per year and Menzies has committed to matching funds raised, dollar for dollar, up to $15 000.
So far, we have raised $5000 and with Menzies contribution that means we have $10 000 towards the total cost. We are nearly a third of the way there!
