Moreton ATSICHS is a member of the Institute for Urban Indigenous Health (IUIH).
The Institute for Urban Indigenous Health (IUIH) leads the planning, development and delivery of comprehensive primary health care services to the Indigenous population of South East Queensland (SEQ).
More than 65,000 Indigenous Australians live in the SEQ urban footprint, over a third of Queensland’s Indigenous population.
This is more than the Indigenous population of Victoria (37,991), South Australia (30,431) and Northern Territory (56,779) and almost as many as the Indigenous population of Western Australia (69,665).
IUIH is empowering communities in SEQ to take responsibility for the delivery of health services to Indigenous Australians, by Indigenous Australians.
In this way, IUIH is not only helping to Close the Gap in life expectancy but is laying the foundations for better education, real jobs in the real economy and safer communities.
