The Australia-Indonesia Centre Health Cluster has granted funding for projects covering mental health classification, tobacco education initiatives, and capacity-building for medical professionals, students and parents, with a focus on adolescents.
Following a call-out for Tactical Research Projects, Strategic Research Projects and Youth-Led Educational Initiatives in August and September, Cluster Leads have selected new collaborative projects to be conducted by researchers from The University of Melbourne, Universitas Indonesia, Monash University, Universita Gadjah Mada, The University of Sydney and Universitas Airlangga, and initiatives from Smoke-Free Agents and Center for Indonesia’s Strategic Development Initiatives.
The projects cover an array of research areas surrounding the cluster’s focus on non-communicable diseases (NCDs), including tobacco education and marketing research, mental health data collection and translation of psychometric instruments, parental support, and needs assessments, education and capacity-building for medical professionals and students.
Projects are set to commence in November 2017, with results expected in the second half of 2018.
