Welcome to the Institute for Urban Indigenous Health (IUIH) Ltd

IUIH is a Community Controlled Health Service (CCHS) that leads the planning, development and delivery of health, family wellbeing and social support services to the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander population of South East Queensland. IUIH is working with our Member CCHSs to improve the health, wellbeing and economic independence of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in South East Queensland, the largest and fastest growing Indigenous population in Australia.

The IUIH System of Care

The IUIH System of Care addresses the complexity and fragmented nature of the health system by integrating a range of co-located health and social support services. Through a ’no wrong door approach’, entry to any part of the IUIH System of Care opens up access to the full range of services and programs available.

Responding to COVID-19

IUIH has a range of information and resources available for community members.  

Remember to protect your family and your community by:

  • Staying 1.5 metres away from other people
  • Staying home if you have flu-like symptoms
  • Washing your hands regularly
  • Coughing or sneezing into your elbow or a tissue 

During the COVID-19 pandemic, it is still important to keep up with regular health checks, follow your care plans and make sure that you and your family have preventative screening tests and vaccinations. To help you do this, IUIH has put in place a range of new ways to continue giving you the best and safest care possible, including using telehealth. By giving your clinic a call, you can find out the best way to continue to access all your care needs.
