The Northern Australia Research Network (NARN) is a cross-jurisdictional collaborative network that conducts research to improve the health and wellbeing of people living in Northern Australia.

NARN, supported by HOT NORTH, works in partnership with Indigenous Allied Health Australia (IAHA) to conduct collaborative research in the areas of Functioning, Disability and Health. 

NARN’s objectives are to inform delivery of community rehabilitation and lifestyle services in regional, rural and remote Northern Australia with a focus on:


1) Children developing well

2) Young people and adults growing well and staying strong

3) Older people ageing well in place

NARN is a small network of researchers, clinicians, health managers, Primary Health Network (PHN) managers and consumers from the Northern Territory, Western Australia and Queensland. While Allied health professionals form the majority of the NARN membership there are a range of other members who contribute to delivery of rehabilitation and lifestyle services.
