: Lowitja Institute is an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisation working for the health and wellbeing of Australia’s First Peoples through high impact quality research, knowledge translation, and by supporting a new generation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health researchers. Established in January 2010, the Lowitja Institute operates on key principles of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander leadership, a broader understanding of health that incorporates wellbeing, and the need for the work to have a clear and positive impact. The Institute hosts the Lowitja Institute Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health CRC (Lowitja Institute CRC) which is funded by the Australian Government Cooperative Research Centres (CRC) Programme.
I was given greater tasks than I imagined, and genuinely learnt so much more in my 9 weeks than I possibly could've in any university subject or course! I developed a really great in-depth and every growing body of knowledge both about the Indigenous sector, specifically related to health and wellbeing, as well as broader policy and government relation skills.Bronte Spiteri, Lowitja
