Beck Family Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Injury Prevention Scholarship
The AIPN acknowledges the interplay between social determinants of health and injury among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people including but not limited to connection to culture, socioeconomic factors and barriers to accessing health services. We recognise that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have double the rate of injury compared to non-Indigenous Australians. One key objective of the AIPN is to develop capability within the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander workforce to enhance efforts to prevent injury in Indigenous peoples.
This scholarship will support an Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander researcher, community-worker, practitioner or policy-maker to attend an injury prevention conference. The Scholarship will provide up to $1500 AUD of funding to support attendance at an injury prevention conference (for use on activities such as registration, flights and/or accommodation).
