Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet

The Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet is a web resource that aims to inform practice and policy in Indigenous health by making the evidence base readily accessible via the Internet.

The Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet is helping to ‘close the gap’ in health between Indigenous and other Australians with access to the site being free and therefore available to everyone.

The HealthInfoNet’s translational research aims at providing the knowledge and other information needed for health practitioners and policy-makers to make informed decisions in their work. They source and transform a wide range of all the latest relevant material, health research, information and resources, bringing them together in one place. The aim is to translate this into a form that is easily understood, relevant, meaningful and readily accessible to those who need it.

The award winning work of the HealthInfoNet is guided by a national group of honorary consultants, collaboration with partner organisations and a an advisory board who provide strategic advice and guidance.

The HealthInfoNet also supports information-sharing among practitioners and policy-makers with free online yarning places. The HealthInfoNet is a not for profit service which is funded primarily by the Department of Health and Ageing.
