The National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) recently held a series of workshops to develop Road Map III: A strategic framework for improving Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health through research.
The purpose of the workshops held in various locations around the country including Thursday Island, was to review Road Maps I and II and to make recommendations for Roadmap III. This will help form the guidelines around the way in which the NHMRC fund Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health research.
Centre for Remote Health’s Director Professor Tim Carey and Mental Health Academic, Tanja Hirvonen attended the Darwin workshop in May and were grateful for the opportunity to contribute to such an important initiative. More than 30 people attended the workshop including staff from Charles Darwin University, Flinders NT, the Northern Territory Government, and the Menzies School of Health Research.
