Poche Centre for Indigenous Health

The Poche Centre for Indigenous Health was established within the Faculty of Medicine in 2008. Its development is an important step for the University of Sydney, and marks the beginning of a strong health partnership with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, to promote change and improve health and social justice outcomes.

Our aims

The Poche Centre for Indigenous Health aims to:

"… give Indigenous people decent health and reasonable life expectancy"

"…reduce, if not eradicate, a range of preventable illnesses"

"… play a key role in the delivery of practical health care to Indigenous communities"

"…undertake research, the results of which will inform the way in which Indigenous health care is delivered. The results of this work will be important in swaying public opinion to influence and rejuvenate government policy towards the very first Australians".
