Aboriginal Health Equity

Australia’s largest dedicated Indigenous health research unit
Aboriginal Health Equity

SAHMRI’s Wardliparingga Aboriginal Health Equity theme is building our nation’s leading research unit focused on understanding, monitoring, responding to and reducing inequity in health and wellbeing among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.

The theme invests in and develops the next generation of Indigenous research leaders.

Wardliparingga is a word of the Kaurna people, traditional owners of the Adelaide plains. It means ‘house river place’ and is also the term for the Milky Way reflected in the River Torrens which runs alongside SAHMRI
