Building research capacity in Indigenous Australians and Community Controlled Health Services

Indicative Funding
$2,289,759 over 5 years
In addition to building the research capacity of a cohort of Indigenous and non-Indigenous researchers based in Northern Australia and Victoria this project will establish a network to promote Indigenous health research and build capacity in three Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Services already involved in Indigenous and population health research and in employees within those three Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Services. The project will investigate and evaluate models of how Universities can best build research capacity in Indigenous population health researchers.
