CALHN Internal Closing Date: 05 February 2020

Up to $13.5M in health and medical research grants over three years is available for Indigenous-led projects to drive improvements in outcomes for four key health challenges.

The grants will support practical, innovative health research into the best approaches to prevention, early intervention and treatment.

  • Ending avoidable blindness and deafness: Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have a higher incidence of hearing and sight loss compared with non-Indigenous Australians
  • Preventing chronic kidney disease: Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people experience approximately seven times the burden of disease due to chronic kidney disease than non-Indigenous Australians
  • Improving adolescent mental health: Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander adolescents experience significantly higher mortality rates compared with non-Indigenous Australians and experience a higher burden of disease from causes related to social and emotional wellbeing, including suicide.
