Acknowledgement of Country and COMMITMENT TO GENUINE PARTNERSHIP

Menzies School of Health Research acknowledges the Traditional Owners and custodians of the land on which we conduct our services and research across Australia and we recognise and value their continuing cultural heritage, beliefs and deep connection with the land and waters.
 
Menzies also values the immense contribution that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have made and continue to make to our research.
 
Menzies recognises Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people as the first peoples of Australia. We stand together with communities and our key partners in supporting efforts to achieve real change to benefit Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
 
We believe that communities are best placed to make decisions about matters that directly affect them. We recognise the importance of self-determination and that people should have the ability to participate in decision-making to inform policies that affect their lives. 
 
Menzies is committed to working in partnership with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, their health services and communities to generate new knowledge, build shared understanding and capability, and translate research to improve health and wellbeing. Our aim is to work together to achieve maximal impact in Closing the Gap. 

 

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people should be aware this website may contain images or names of people who have passed away.
