Associate Professor Lavoie has had a long association with Australia, starting with her PhD study on a comparison of the health care funding situation for Indigenous health in Canada, Australia and New Zealand. She was one of the chief investigators in the Overburden Project, which examined the complex and fragmented funding pattern in Australia. She is currently part of the Centre for Research Excellence led by Professor Alex Brown of the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI).

In this lecture, Dr Josée will explore how contracting for health services between Federal Government and First Nations has progressed over time, and discuss emerging models.
