Improving the health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander populations is a major priority for The George Institute. We focus on addressing high rates of chronic disease and injury within these communities. The community-led programs drive evidence-based solutions to help close the life expectancy gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians.
