About Us

The Centre of Research Excellence in Aboriginal Chronic Disease Knowledge Translation and Exchange (CREATE) is a National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) funded research program dedicated to improving service delivery and health outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, with a particular focus on chronic disease. The Centre is a collaborative enterprise between the following organisations:

  • National Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation (NACCHO)
  • Wardliparingga Aboriginal Research Unit, South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI);
  • University of Adelaide – School of Public Health and Joanna Briggs Institute (University of Adelaide)

A Leadership Group comprising representatives from the Aboriginal Community Controlled Health sector, including NACCHO, its affiliates and member services, as well as other Aboriginal health services has been established to guide the work of CREATE. This ensures that outcomes are of the greatest relevance for improving the health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
