Wardliparingga Aboriginal Health Equity Research Theme is a partnership between South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI) and the University of Adelaide, led by Professor Alex Brown.

Wardliparingga’s fundamental objective is to create an equitable nation through research that improves the health and wellbeing of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. Our research priorities are informed by community needs and aspirations, and target the leading causes of morbidity and mortality experienced by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.

Our approaches involve understanding the biological, psychosocial and health system determinants of health and wellbeing, and how best to respond and achieve these.

Half of our team identify as Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander, enabling us to more completely understand the strengths of culture and the importance of context in building solutions to difficult challenges facing Indigenous communities.
