is helping to ‘close the gap’ by providing the evidence base to inform practice and policy in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health.
The Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet is an innovative Internet resource that aims to inform practice and policy in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health by making research and other knowledge readily accessible. In this way, we contribute to ‘closing the gap’ in health between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and other Australians. The HealthInfoNet is headed up by Professor Neil Drew.
Work in the area of translational research with a population health focus – in which we are a world leader – makes research and other information available in a form that has immediate, practical utility for practitioners and policy-makers in the area of Indigenous health, enabling them to make decisions based on the best available evidence.
