“I just wanted to extend my deepest appreciation and thanks for your holistic care and support. I was able to sit my online supplementary exam today, without stressing about “poor” internet connection, as a result of the financial assistance I received through the student bursary. Thank you so much for making me feel completely comfortable in seeking support, and further for acting so so swiftly in supporting my needs. The Optus Dongle has made such a huge difference in accessing my studies during this strange time”

Support a Health Academy Student
The IAHA National Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Health Academy is an innovative, community-led learning model that is about re-shaping and re-designing how training and education is delivered to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students in high school embedding the centrality of culture and a holistic approach to health.
The model is designed to work collaboratively across disciplines and organisational structures (health, education and training, employment) to increase Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander high school student engagement, retention and successful completion of Year 12 with a Certificate III in Allied Health Assistance. It aims to demonstrate the success of education and training outcomes when social and cultural determinants are considered and partnered with wrap around supports brought together and led by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students, families and communities.

Help us to Support our Communities
IAHA are always looking for ways to support our communities suffering from devastation and disaster. After the 2019 monsoon hit the Palm Island Community, their services, food and electricity were cut off for a couple of weeks.
As a way of showing support, together with partner organisations – NATSIHWA, AIDA and the Lowitja Institute, $8,000 was raised to purchase non-perishable food items, nappies, baby bottles, toilet paper and was sent to Palm Island to support community and to ease the stress of families.
The Palm Island Community Company (PICC) kindly took delivery of the items, packaged them up suitable for delivery to community who needed it most.
You can help us to support our communities by filling out the form below. Every donation is greatly appreciated by IAHA, our members and our communities.
