Indigenous health research needs to be driven by priorities set by Indigenous people, to be of practical use to the Indigenous health sector and to develop research capacity within the Indigenous community. The Lowitja Institute and its predecessor the CRC for Aboriginal Health, have developed resources in response to a growing need for resources in this area.
The Guide includes the history, context, values and change priorities of Indigenous health research in Australia and the planning and management of Indigenous health research projects. It offers practical information, advice, strategies and success stories in Indigenous health research.

A companion volume, Supporting Indigenous Researchers: A practical guide for supervisors, by the same authors, was published in 2009.
