A clinically qualified and culturally competent Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health workforce is vital if Australia is to make a difference to Indigenous health

The Murra Mullangari — Pathways Alive and Well program is an initiative of the Australian Indigenous Doctors’ Association (AIDA) in partnership with other peak Indigenous organisations. Using culture and identity as a strength, the program was developed with the aims of building the aspirations and capacity of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander senior high school students to remain in the academic pipeline and pursue careers in health.
