Welcome to the Wurru Wurru Health Unit

The Wurru Wurru Health Unit acknowledges and pays respect to the Traditional Custodians of the lands, waterways and skies on which the University campuses and clinical schools are located. This includes the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung, Boon Wurrung, Dja Dja Wurrung, Wadawurrung and Taungurung of the Kulin Nation, as well as the Yorta-Yorta Nation.

We extend respects to the Elders and Ancestors of these Nations and recognise the continuation of cultural, spiritual and educational practices of Australia’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples (respectfully referred to as First Nations).

The Wurru Wurru Health Unit aims to advance the health of First Nations peoples in Australia to reduce inequity and create positive change. Our teaching and research is centred on the holistic view of health of First Nations peoples to promote wellbeing, underpinned by the principles of self-determination
