Gukwonderuk - Indigenous Health
We would like to acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the land we are on. We pay our respect to Elders past, present and future.
We are committed to:
- A human rights approach to health equity for Indigenous people
- Quality education in Indigenous health equity
- Developing more Indigenous people to become healthcare providers, educators, researchers and leaders
Our name, Gukwonderuk (Wotjobaluk), is an important cure-all medicine used by Aboriginal people in South East Australia; the word translates to wise old plant or old man weed.
