The CRC for Aboriginal Health 2003–2009

The CRC for Aboriginal Health (CRCAH) was based in Darwin. Under the leadership of its Chair, Ms Pat Anderson, the CRCAH brought together 12 core partners and six associate partners from research institutions, government agencies and aboriginal health services around Australia.

The CRCAH made the decision to integrate its research with capacity development and research transfer activities to ensure that outcomes had a practical impact in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. It developed five research programs:

  • Chronic conditions
  • Comprehensive primary health care, health systems and workforce
  • Healthy skin
  • Social and emotional wellbeing
  • Social determinants of health.
