This week, we heard from Professor Rebecca Ivers, the Director of the Injury Division at The George Institute. She is an injury epidemiologist who holds a Masters degree in Public Health and PhD in injury epidemiology from the University of Sydney. She has an appointment as Professor of Public Health at UNSW Sydney, and is an honorary professor at the University of Sydney and a Professor at Flinders University. Rebecca has published widely in the peer reviewed literature in the fields of road traffic injury and falls prevention.

Rebecca has research interests that span a broad range of topics, including novice drivers, motorcycle helmets in Asia and heavy vehicle research. She is passionate about the need to decrease road injury in vulnerable road users in the low and middle income countries of the region and is actively engaged in research with this aim. She is particularly interested in injury prevention among Indigenous communities.

The Campaign for Australian Aid is a community of Australian aid and development organisations, churches, community groups, businesses and citizens who speak out for a world where all people, regardless of gender, race or place of birth, can live a free, happy and healthy life. We support a global approach to action on poverty, inequality and climate change and for an Australia that is a compassionate global citizen helping to create a fair, sustainable and peaceful world, including through increasing our Australian aid budget. What we will cover:  Climate change is one of the biggest public health threats facing the world.  We also know those living in the poorest parts of the world will be hit first and hardest.  We can’t solve global poverty without also tackling climate change.  This week we will draw attention to climate change and global poverty issues. Follow: @campaignforaid and @tonyrmilne.

This week, Penelope Smith (@LopeyPen) & Dr Kristen Smith (Smith_KristenD) tag-teamed, with a focus on the Indigenous Studies Unit at the University of Melbourne and an Indigenous Data Sovereignty Symposium, hosted by the University of Melbourne on 11 and 12 October at the Parkville campus, in partnership with the Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies (AIATSIS). Check #IDS17 for Symposium news.

The goals of our symposium are:

  • To demonstrate the local significance of Indigenous data sovereignty by showcasing emerging evidence and best practice models of Indigenous data sovereignty;
  • Increase awareness of the importance of Indigenous data sovereignty for local Indigenous communities, researchers, government and other related stakeholders;
  • Provide information on data custodianship, management, reporting and presentation, including models of monitoring and evaluation and issues of consent;
  • Outline specific strategies and approaches to make better use of data that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people already have undisputed sovereignty (e.g. data from Aboriginal land councils, medical services, legal services) and how to access information held by various government custodians (e.g. ABS, AIHW, PMC);
  • Develop a nationwide network to empower Indigenous organisations and communities to take advantage of developments in data science and maximise the use of their data resources for community benefit; and
  • Develop an agenda that will progress Indigenous Data Sovereignty in Australia for Indigenous communities.

Penelope tweeted from Sunday to Thursday and then Kristen for the final two days. Both Kristen and Penelope work for the Indigenous Studies Unit, in the Centre for Health Equity, Melbourne School of Population Health at the University of Melbourne: @IndigenousUoM; @HlthEquityMDHS; @UniMelb.

Penelope joined the Indigenous Studies team this year, having previously worked as a researcher at Mental Health Research Institute and National Stroke Research Institute; an academic and researcher at the Australian Catholic University, La Trobe University, and University of Melbourne; and Stakeholder Management Officer for the Cooperative Research Centre for Aboriginal Health and the Lowitja Institute (National Institute for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health). She has also completed projects for the Western Pacific Regional Office of World Health Organization for the Division of Health Sector Development and Division of NCD and Health through the Life-Course.

Kristen is a Research Fellow (medical anthropology) in the Indigenous Studies Unit (MSPGH) at the University of Melbourne. She has contributed to research for the Australian Government in building capacity and the evidence base for the development of alcohol policy in northern Australia, with a particular focus on how this impacts Aboriginal communities. She works collaboratively with academic and non-academic bodies, within the disciplinary frameworks of anthropology, sociology, epidemiology and public health. Her developing research expertise is global and national, ranging from macro-micro studies of international health systems to health focused case study work in Australian Indigenous communities. Kristen holds a Bachelor of Arts from Deakin University, a Master of Social Science (International Development) from RMIT and a PhD (medical anthropology) from the University of Melbourne.

Hepatitis Victoria – @HepVic – was in the chair in the lead-up to World Hepatitis Day on Friday 28 July. Hepatitis Victoria is the peak not-for-profit community organisation working across the state for people affected by or at risk of viral hepatitis.

We raise awareness, provide information and support, and advocate for action on prevention, testing and treatment. We recognise that achieving the aim of eliminating hepatitis B and C by 2030 means also eliminating the stigma and discrimination that pose a potentially deadly barrier to people seeking help.

Viral hepatitis affects around 500,000 people in Australia, and 110,000 in Victoria, where around six people die every week from the disease, which can lead to cirrhosis, liver failure, and liver cancer – the fastest increasing cause of cancer death in Australia. In contrast, the hepatitis A virus that has recently been associated with contaminated frozen berries affects a small number of people in Australia, and does not result in death.

A global campaign to mark World Hepatitis Day is being carried out under the theme of ‘Elimination’ and using the hashtag #NoHep. (Read more here from the World Hepatitis Alliance). In Australia,  #HepFreeAus was also used, and state-specific hashtags such as #HepFreeVic.

We commenced our live-tweeting for the week with our Monday event at the Parliament of Victoria, Diverse communities and the hepatitis challenge – towards elimination. The event recognises that culturally diverse and Aboriginal communities are disproportionately impacted by viral hepatitis for a range of reasons including inadequate access to health services, poor health literacy, and broader socio-economic disadvantage.

This week, Dr Margaret Beavis – @margaretbeavis – is in the chair. A Melbourne GP with a strong interest in public health, she has just returned from 10 days in New York at the UN, as a civil society participant at negotiations between 120-plus countries for an historic nuclear weapons ban treaty which is expected to be concluded on July 7. The talks are being boycotted by the US, other nuclear states, the NATO states and Australia, the first time an Australian government has refused to participate in such a multilateral accord. Beavis will tweet this week with insights from the negotiations and about Australia’s failure to participate.

She teaches at Melbourne University and is currently president of the Medical Association for Prevention of War (@mapw_australia), the Australian affiliate of the International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War (IPPNW) which was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1985 in recognition of its work to alert Soviet and US leaders to the grave public health risks of nuclear war and to educate the general public.
