Stream 2: Partnerships in health

The Tropical Australian Academic Health Centre (TAAHC) is a partnership between the Northern Queensland Primary Health Network; Townsville Hospital and Health Service, Cairns and Hinterland Hospital and Health Service, Mackay Hospital and Health Service, Torres and Cape Hospital and Health Service and North West Hospital and Health Service; James Cook University and the Australian Institute of Tropical Health and Medicine.

With a focus on tropical health, Indigenous health, and health service delivery in regional, rural and remote settings, TAAHC will address the health issues of key importance to North Queensland and will play a major role in shaping the tropical health research agenda in the region.

TAAHC provides a unique opportunity for primary care, health service and research providers in the region to work together to better integrate primary and acute health care and engage in research that enhances collective capability in health care, health and medical research and workforce development.

By stimulating, supporting and facilitating collaboration and research, TAAHC aims to improve quality and efficiency of health service delivery, improve the health of the northern Queensland population and grow the prosperity of the tropical region through its leadership in tropical health research.
