    Abstract

    On the first of February 2011 Murdoch University commenced a research project to identify gaps and needs in health and education of Gumala Aboriginal Corporation (GAC) members and to provide practical solutions to reduce these gaps and needs. All Gumala members were invited to participate but special emphasis was placed on members in the Pilbara region of Western Australia. Our findings are contained On the first of February 2011 Murdoch University commenced a research project to identify gaps and needs in health and education of Gumala Aboriginal Corporation (GAC) members and to provide practical solutions to reduce these gaps and needs. All Gumala members were invited to participate but special emphasis was placed on members in the Pilbara region of Western Australia. Our findings are contained within this report. In addition our methodologies allow cautious generalisation of many of the findings to other Aboriginal language groups in the Pilbara. The research project was co-sponsored by Gumala Aboriginal Corporation and Rio Tinto.

    The project team consisted of: Dr. Bruce Walker, Project Director (Health), Dr Anne Price, Project team member (Education), Ms Elizabeth Jackson-Barrett, Project team member (Education), Ms Ellen Seymour, Project Officer (Health) (deceased) and Dr Norman Stomski, Project Officer (Health).

    We commend the report to all who read it and particularly the recommendations which we believe will enhance the health and educational status of Gumala members, their children and generations to come.
