Researchers in our Indigenous Health team are addressing health disparities between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people in Australia.
We are partnering with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community controlled organisations to co-design and co-develop potential e-Health solutions to complement existing successful models of care for some of the most significant health issues in their communities.
Central to the vision and research activities of the Indigenous Health team is the understanding and respect that Indigenous people conceptualise health as holistic, dynamic and interconnected – as opposed to the dominant mainstream model on which many health interventions are based.
The Australian e-Health Research Centre (AEHRC) is CSIRO's digital health research program and a joint venture between CSIRO and the Queensland Government. The AEHRC works with state and federal health agencies, clinical research groups and health businesses around Australia.
