AIDA Awards

Nominations for the 2020-21 AIDA Awards are now closed.

Since 2015, the AIDA Awards have been recognising the contribution our members make to improving health outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples. There are three award categories for 20-21:

If you know an AIDA member who has contributed to improving the health and life outcomes of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples, please nominate them for an AIDA Award.

Please read and make yourself familiar with the AIDA Awards Framework which contains information about eligibility, nomination criteria, the nomination and judging process and the key dates for the awards.

Winners of each category will be recognised and celebrated for their work, with their peers at an AIDA event (details to be confirmed soon).
