ABORIGINAL CHILD AND ADOLESCENT HEALTH IMPROVEMENT THROUGH ABORIGINAL LEADERSHIP AND COLLABORATIVE RESEARCH TEAMS
Grant number: 1135273 | Funding period: 2018 - 2022
Continued progress to improve the health of Aboriginal children and adolescents will help drive continued improvements in the health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. The proposed CRE will harness the potential of several leading research projects in these areas and provide additional training for Aboriginal researchers at varying levels of career development. A comprehensive program to translate these programs to policy changes is core the the CRE.
