Research

At the Lowitja Institute our research is built on priorities identified by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. We aim to produce high impact research, tools and resources that will have positive health outcomes for Australia's First Peoples.

To guide this effort the Lowitja Institute has identified five key principles that underpin our approach to research. These are:

  1. Beneficence – to act for the benefit of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in the conduct of our research
  2. Leadership by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people
  3. Engagement of research end users (Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisations and communities, policymakers, other potential research users)
  4. Development of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander research workforce, and
  5. Measurement of impact in improving Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people’s health.
Research programs

The Lowitja Institute CRC has developed three research programs that promote high-quality research through partnerships with key stakeholders in the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health sector, government agencies and research institutions:

The research programs are guided by expert advice from Program Committees.
