Welcome to the RACGP online grant application service, powered by SmartyGrants.
The RACGP recognises that improving the health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people is one of Australia's highest health priorities. The RACGP supports research which makes a difference to health outcomes, policy and practice, and the capacity of general practice to engage with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders' health issues. It particularly encourages a systematic approach to strategic and policy-driven research focusing on primary care, developing collaborative approaches and the building of research capacity within populations and communities.
In 2003, the then RACGP President Professor Michael Kidd, waived his right to any form of payment and placed his allowance in a secure interest bearing account with the interest to be used as the basis of an annual award to support general practice initiatives in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health. The RACGP Indigenous Health Award was offered for the first time in 2004. The award aims to build a wealth of research knowledge to draw on to improve Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health outcomes, and also to develop and encourage researchers in this important field of work in Australia.
