Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island peoples should enjoy the same life expectancy and health as their fellow Australians. Today, Indigenous Australians die 10 years younger and suffer poorer health than other Australians. Our purpose is to find and develop Australia’s best Indigenous leaders.
Strong Indigenous health initiatives must have strong Indigenous leadership.
We empower emerging and established leaders alike. We help them maximise opportunities and realise their potential through support and our network.
Our leaders will go on to disrupt and innovate their field of health practice.
