You can help Close the Gap

AIDA is committed to reducing the health equity gap experienced by Indigenous Australians. We believe growing the number of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander medical students and doctors will help achieve this goal.

AIDA works closely with government, the education sector and the medical industry towards a culturally safe health care system and culturally safe career paths for Indigenous medical students and doctors. We also work hard to support our members throughout their studies and careers and this support is in the form of providing mentoring and peer support opportunities, advocacy and assisting with access to financial support through bursaries and scholarships.

AIDA is a registered charity and all donations over $2 are tax deductible.

Your donation will provide invaluable support to our work and our members so that we can achieve better health outcomes for Indigenous Australians.

You can donate to AIDA by:

  • Direct debit – click to arrange a one off and / or a regular donation to AIDA (credit card or savings account accepted).
  • By phone – call the AIDA secretariat on 1800 190 498 to use your credit or debit card or arrange for a direct deposit.

Other contributions
Some donors may wish to have more involvement in our work, or perhaps leave a legacy to assist in closing the gap. Our secretariat can assist with any queries you might have around bequests or establishing a scholarship fund to support Indigenous medical students and / or doctors.
