The Centre for Research Excellence in Aboriginal Health and Wellbeing (CREAHW) is a strategic program of intervention research that is focused on achieving radical and sustainable change for the Aboriginal community and improving the lives of Aboriginal people. The program is a unique validation of Aboriginal knowledge and demonstration of Indigenous methodology involving a multi-disciplinary team of Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal researchers, who will contribute to the body of knowledge, work transparently with the Aboriginal community and embrace Aboriginal culture and ways of thinking.


The Centre for Research Excellence in Aboriginal Health and Wellbeing, is funded through the  National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) grant From Marginalised to Empowered: transformative methods for Aboriginal Health and Wellbeing, and is the flagship of Aboriginal research at the Institute.
