At the core of the Menzies Strategic Plan is Menzies commitment to research, education and training, and transfer of research outcomes into policy and practice. Our research activities continue to be focused on Indigenous health and are housed in six research Divisions Child Health; Healing and Resilience; International Health; Preventable Chronic Diseases; Services, Systems and Society; and Tropical and Emerging Infectious Diseases. The Strategic Plan also addresses the urgent need to improve recruitment, development and retention of Indigenous staff and research leaders of the future. The Plan outlines our strong commitment to working hand in hand with Indigenous communities through the establishment of community based Research Hubs and the development of a Menzies Indigenous Development Unit. Health education and training will continue to be central to everything we do and the Plan outlines our commitment to not only broadening the range and scope of the courses on offer, but also increasing the numbers of students enrolled at all levels, particularly Indigenous students. There are many challenges and opportunities over the next few years and the Menzies Strategic Plan is a blueprint to enable the Board and staff of Menzies to achieve our vision and goals for research, education and Indigenous development and capacity building.
