Indigenous Health Promotion


Indigenous Health Promotion aims to improve Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health at a community level. This means identifying community needs and strengths, developing a plan of action and putting it into practice.


To empower individuals and communities by educating Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health workers via six block-mode intensive workshops. During the year, students will learn to:

  • identify community health priorities, needs and strengths;
  • work in partnership with communities to develop programs that effectively address these priorities and needs; and
  • implement and evaluate the programs using best practice and to ensure accountability and continued improvement.


Once students have completed their studies, they will:

  • be able to address any health issue using best practice health promotion tools and processes;
  • progress their careers and role model to their families and communities;
  • undertake higher university degrees; and
  • act to improve the health and wellbeing of their communities and the wider population.
