Quality evidence generated from this Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander led research will allow for better planning, funding and implementation of policies and services to improve nutrition at the individual, community or system level.

The aim of implementing this call is to provide funding for rigorous and culturally-safe research into improving the nutritional health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

This Targeted Call for Research follows a public call for research priorities in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health conducted in 2016 and consultations in 2017 for the development of NHMRC’s Road Map 3: a strategic framework for improving Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health through research. Improving the health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples is considered a major issue for NHMRC.

Nutrition is also identified as a priority in the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Plan (2013-2023) and the Implementation Plan for the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Plan (2013-2023).
