The University of Melbourne’s Indigenous Eye Health (IEH) was established in 2008 at the Melbourne School of Population and Global Health to undertake world-leading research that has established an evidence base and policy framework to address Indigenous eye health in Australia.
The leader of IEH is Melbourne Laureate Professor Hugh R Taylor AC, an internationally renowned ophthalmologist, and inaugural Harold Mitchell Chair of Indigenous Eye Health.
An Advisory Board oversees the work of IEH and provides overarching advice, direction on work, guidance on funding, and advice as to how data collected can be used to implement policy change
