Acknowledgement of Country and support for The Voice referendum 

Menzies School of Health Research acknowledges the traditional owners and custodians of the land on which we conduct our services/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 support the Uluru Statement from the Heart. We support the referendum to enshrine a First Nations Voice in the Constitution. We stand together with First Nations communities and our key partners in supporting a YES vote in the upcoming national referendum.

 

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 inform policies and practices that affect their lives. We believe that constitutional recognition and enabling Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to participate in decision making about critical issues affecting their communities is fundamental to Closing the Gap.

 

Menzies supports open, well-informed and respectful debate regarding the referendum. We will encourage and enable our staff and students to access information they need to make their own informed decisions.

 

Menzies is committed to working in partnership with First Nations Australians, 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.
