As the national institute for Aboriginal and Torres Islander health research, we have a significant responsibility to provide leadership and work that will result in positive impact for the health and wellbeing of our peoples.

Our work encompasses all areas that contribute to the health and wellbeing of Australia’s First Peoples, including cultural and social determinants. The work of the Lowitja Institute is ambitious, rigorous and culturally safe.

In the yarns below, we share the voices of our researchers and communities, telling their stories about the impact of the research we have funded. For more information on our projects and resources take a look at our research categories, our resources and our services.
