The AH&MRC Ethics Committe celebrates 20 years of past, present and future of Aboriginal Ethics

About Us

The pdf Constitution of the Aboriginal Health and Medical Research Council (AH&MRC) (6.36 MB) requires it to operate an Ethics Committee.

The AH&MRC Ethics Committee operates as a Human Research Ethics Committee under the National Health and Medical Research Council (NH&MRC) legislation. The Committee is assessed annually by the NH&MRC to ensure that it meets NH&MRC Guidelines.

The role of the AH&MRC Ethics Committee is to assess research proposals affecting the health and wellbeing of Aboriginal people and communities in NSW, and to monitor the collection of data on Aboriginal health to ensure these activities will be conducted ethically. This role is endorsed by the NSW Health Department and embodied within the NSW Aboriginal Health Information Guidelines which guide all NSW government agencies responsible for the management of Aboriginal health and health-related information.
