An Aboriginal-led research project is developing greater understanding of the complex challenges Aboriginal families face reunifying with children removed to out-of-home care.
The disproportionate removal of Aboriginal children will continue without an improved government response, says UNSW's Professor Megan Davis.
Professor Megan Davis, the author of the independent review into Aboriginal children and young people in out-of-home care, says the government needs to “implement recommendations and announce the way forward”.
Avoidable hospitalisations among Aboriginal children are almost double those of non-Aboriginal children, UNSW research has revealed.
Fifty grants worth more than $30 million have been awarded to UNSW in the latest round of funding from the National Health and Medical Research Council - the University's best ever result.
