Our Mission

The Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet‘s mission is to contribute to improving the health of Australia’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and assist in ‘closing the gap’ by facilitating the sharing and exchange of relevant, high-quality knowledge.

We address our mission by:

  • undertaking research
  • disseminating relevant information
  • facilitating information exchange
  • providing internet and related training.

We take a broad view of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health, along the lines used by the National Aboriginal Health Strategy Working Party, and expanded by the National Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation (NACCHO):

health is not just the physical wellbeing of an individual, but the social, emotional, and cultural wellbeing of the whole community in which each individual is able to achieve their full potential as a human being thereby bringing about the total wellbeing of their community.
