about us building 15The 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.

We are a Level II Research Centre within Edith Cowan University (ECU), Western Australia’s oldest tertiary education institution and newest university. Awarded university status in 1991, ECU is a large multi-campus institution serving communities in WA and a significant cohort of international students (more).

Our 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 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health, enabling them to make decisions based on the best available evidence (more).

We also encourage and support information-sharing among practitioners, policy-makers and others working to improve Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health. Our 'yarning places' (electronic networks) allow people with common interests and purposes to share information, knowledge and experience from different states, territories, regions and sectors.

Our core functions are made possible by grants (particularly from the Australian Department of Health). Specific research activities are supported by funds from a variety of sources.
