Project Team


The National Drug Research Institute at Curtin University has been commissioned to conduct a review of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander services. The aim of this is to provide a report which covers:

  • identification of gaps in current service provision;
  • areas of unmet need;
  • priority groups;
  • service planning processes;
  • funding models/funding arrangements and contracting issues; and,
  • strengths, weaknesses and challenges across these areas.
