20 years of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander led and focused health research

To mark the anniversary of 20 years of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander led and focused health research, the Lowitja Institute are launching a major new report today, 9 August 2017, at Parliament House in Canberra.

The publication titled: Changing the Narrative in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Research Four Cooperative Research Centres and the Lowitja Institute: The story so far outlines the journey and the successes of the Institute and the CRCs, and showcases how their cumulative efforts have pioneered a new way of conducting  health research in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. It maps the evolution of a new, collaborative and culturally appropriate way of carrying out health research. It’s an approach driven by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander priorities, developed by the CRCs, and embodied in the Institute.
