The Advisory Board was formed in 2008 to provide expert strategic advice to the Director and Management Team of the HealthInfoNet to assist in optimising our contributions to closing the gap between the health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and other Australians.
The Advisory Board comprises representatives of key stakeholder organisations and members selected for their individual expertise. Members are:

Users of this web resource are warned that it may contain images and/or references to deceased people,
which could cause distress or sadness particularly for some Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
The resource may also contain words and descriptions that could be culturally sensitive and which might not normally
be used in public or community contexts. For example, some information may be considered appropriate for viewing
only by men or only by women. The HealthInfoNet respects such culturally sensitive issues, but,
for technical reasons, it has not been possible to provide materials in a way that prevents access by a person of the other gender.
Users are asked to respect this cultural protocol.
The Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet acknowledges the Traditional Owners of the lands and waters of Australia and the Torres Strait.
We respect all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people—their customs and their beliefs. We also pay our respects to Elders past and present, with particular acknowledgement to the Whadjuk people of the Nyoongar nation, the traditional owners of the lands where our offices are located.
