EXTERNALLY FUNDED RESEARCH PROJECTS

Preventing violence-related mortality and morbidity among people exposed to the criminal justice system

Significance

This project will generate new and policy-relevant evidence on the rate, risk, predictive factors and circumstances of violence-related mortality and morbidity in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander populations.
