Video project explores Indigenous health research across the MACH

The MACH today launched its new mapping and video project, which explores the strengths it offers in Indigenous health research across its 18 partners, including in supporting and building capacity among Indigenous researchers. 

The video interviews are an initiative stemming from the MACH's inaugural Indigenous health research day, entitled "Hearing Our Voices: The Importance of Community Engagement and Innovation in Indigenous Health Research," held 26 November 2018 at the Melbourne Brain Centre. That event brought together over 150 academics, students, allied health workers and community partners from across Victoria and Australia in collaboration and celebration. Co-sponsored by the Australian Health Research Alliance, participants on the day were given the opportunity to share what Indigenous health research means to them. 

Next up for the MACH is a more formal Indigenous Health group with aims of collaborative research and innovative projects (further membership details to come), to be led by: 


  • Prof Sandra Eades, University of Melbourne 

  • Prof Elif Ekinci, University of Melbourne and Austin Health

  • A/Prof Luke Burchill, University of Melbourne and the Royal Melbourne Hospital 

  • Prof Stephanie Brown, Murdoch Children's Research Institute
