Advocating for Indigenous health

Find out how we're involving Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander and Māori communities in policy development and decision-making and joining forces with medical colleges around Australia and Aotearoa New Zealand to advocate for Indigenous health.

Partnering for Good Health and Wellbeing for Indigenous Australians

In May 2017 The Council of Presidents of Medical Colleges singed a partnership agreement with the Australian Government to work with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peak bodies and service providers to reduce the current gap in health outcomes and life expectancy between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and non-Indigenous Australians.

Supporting conferences

We support the following conferences through sponsorships, trade booths, workshops and presentations.

Health Equity Project Fund

We have established a Health Equity Projects Fund to support activites for the global development and Indigenous Health committees.

The Health Equity Projects Fund is a competative grant process open to all ANZCA fellows, for projects that support the aims and activites of the Indigenous Health Committee and Overseas Aid Committee.

Applications for 2020 projects have now closed.
