About Us

Professor Catherine Chamberlain, Head of the Indigenous Health Equity Unit, cacham@unimelb.edu.au

The Indigenous Health Equity Unit is a research and teaching unit at The University of Melbourne committed to partnering with and producing research for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.

We undertake rigorous, innovative research and teaching, centred on the strength and resilience of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, to promote wellbeing. Our work is underpinned by the principles of self-determination. We work in partnership with communities and appreciate the support of Community Elders.

Our academic program is based on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander values and principles, and respects the contribution and cultural background of all who work with us.
