This roles create a unique opportunity to connect with Australia’s indigenous population and the specific health challenges faced by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. The Australian government is particularly keen to ‘close the gap’ in health outcomes of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and consequently Aboriginal Health Services are well supported and well-funded.
