Poche Indigenous Health Network

Established and funded by philanthropists Greg Poche AO and Kay Van Norton Poche, the Poche Indigenous Health Network aims to help close the gap in life expectancy and achieve health equality for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. We recognise that respecting local communities and supporting collaboration and self-determination will be the only way to achieve this goal.

The vision for the Poche Indigenous Health Network was developed by Reg Richardson AM and Tom Calma AO both of whom are dear friends of the Poche family.

We acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the land across Australia and pay our respect to the Elders past, present and future. We also acknowledge young people as they are our future leaders.

Research topics

Poche Centres are located in universities and the collective knowledge, experience and authority of university research can be harnessed to tackle wicked and emerging challenges in Indigenous health, well-being and affairs. 

ABOUT US

The Poche Indigenous Health Network has been created to make the most of the efforts and resources of the individual Poche Centres for Indigenous Health and to focus on issues best dealt with at a national level.
