Partnership opportunities:

Investment in health research is an essential part of closing the gap in health and improving the quality of life between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians. We have many opportunities for partnership that will help us to make the necessary difference and that encompasses both research and its translation as well as helping to grow the Indigenous health research workforce.
