About the Centre
The Melbourne Poche Centre for Indigenous Health, established in 2015, sits within the Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences at the University of Melbourne. The Centre’s aim is to support Indigenous leaders and provide advice across the board on Indigenous development.
Following a grant by philanthropists Mr Greg Poche AO and Ms Kay Van Norton Poche AO, funding for the Melbourne Poche Centre for Indigenous Health was announced in late 2014. Launched in November that year, the Centre is located at the University of Melbourne and is a member of the Poche Indigenous Health Network, which consists of five centres at five universities across Australia.
