Last week the Sydney office held its annual special event to celebrate NAIDOC Week in Australia. The event started off with a warm Welcome to Country by Uncle Chicka Madden.

On the 27th of June 2019 The George Institute for Global Health held the Fight the Fear breakfast event at which the guests were invited to challenge their pre conceived notions about the possibilities of science and technology, changing the ways in which we think about and thereby solve social problems.

The 2019 Women and Heart Disease Forum was held in Sydney on 19 June, presented by the National Heart Foundation in collaboration with The George Institute for Global Health.

The right to health and the obligations of countries worldwide were the focus of the latest George Talks event at The George Institute for Global Health.

Professor Gorik Ooms, from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, presented: ‘Health security and the right to health: friends and foes’ and began by explaining human rights as a concept; that one cannot have a right if there is no corresponding obligation.

He stated that a person’s right to health was based on a reasonable expectation that society will intervene.

He said:

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children are still dying from unintentional injuries at the same rate as 15 years ago, a new report has highlighted. Yet death rates for non-Aboriginal children have halved in the same period.

Congratulations are in order for Dr Carcel, Research Fellow in the Stroke and Women’s Health Program at The George Institute Australia, and winner of the 2019 Franklin Women Carer’s Travel Scholarship.
