Making Data Collection Easy in Indigenous Health

Making Data Collection Easy in Indigenous Health

One of iyarn CEO Lockie Cooke’s goals for establishing iyarn was to create a way for not-for-profit organisations to capture the outcomes of their initiatives in an easy way.

Collecting this data quickly and efficiently means these purposeful organisations can spend more time doing their work to benefit the community, rather than getting caught up and bogged down in evaluation and reporting duties.

iyarn’s New Partnership with the Foundation for Indigenous Sustainable Health

We’re stoked to announce the signing an agreement with the Foundation for Indigenous Sustainable Health (FISH). We’ll be the preferred data collection and evaluation tool used by the team.

One of the most exciting initiatives we are looking at working on is “Myalup Karla Waanginy”. In local language, “Myalup” means “meeting place”; being a point where the Bindjareb and Widandi people would come together. “Karla” means “fire” and “waanginy” means “talking/yarning”.

Myalup Karla Waanginy will be a $24m multipurpose site with a focus on healing, education, justice rehabilitation and Aboriginal social enterprise, making the program economically self-sustaining. The site will be developed as a national prototype to bring change throughout Australia.
