The Australian Indigenous HealthBulletin Journal is a peer-reviewed, open-access online journal that shares multi-disciplinary knowledge and research about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health. The Journal facilitates access to information to support those working in the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health sector, helping to improve health outcomes by providing evidence to inform practice and policy. Reflecting the wide range of readers – policy makers, service providers, researchers, students and the general community – the HealthBulletin serves as a platform for knowledge exchange.
The Journal publishes original, informative and scholarly articles on a broad range of topics under the umbrella of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health and wellbeing. Preference for publication is given to practical examples of policies, strategies and programs that utilise clinical, educational, organisational, economic and/or environmental approaches to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health that have the potential to inform and support everyday practice. The HealthBulletin has a strong commitment to enhancing strength based approaches to responding to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health issues and concerns.
While the HealthBulletin is run by a team of editors from the Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet, we also invite submissions from those working in and researching Indigenous health worldwide that will be of interest to, and inform the everyday practice of, the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health sector workforce in Australia.
