Hot North: funding for health research in Northern Australia

Date posted: 9 February 2018

The Office of Northern Australia recently announced the commitment of Government funding, over four years, to a wide range of research projects concentrating on the health of both Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians. The funding will be channelled to the Menzies School of Health Research, based in Darwin. Menzies, a collaboration of NT government, Charles Darwin University and the Australian Government’s National Health and Medical Research Council, will target research through a programme entitled ‘Hot North’, towards a range of health related issues in northern Australia.

Hot North is an ambitious endeavour aiming to develop and nurture knowledge and understanding of the health issues facing the region of northern Australia. Funding will be allocated to academic, laboratory and clinical research. The investigation is to be themed to five key health areas: skin health; respiratory health; antimicrobial resistance; chronic disease; and vector-borne and emerging diseases.
