The Kanyini Vascular Collaboration has four objectives:
- To identify systemic barriers to health care for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with cardiovascular and chronic kidney diseases (CVD and CKD) and diabetes, from the perspective of the patient, their community and health care providers;
- In collaboration with community-controlled primary health services and using rigorous methodology, to develop, implement and evaluate relevant health systems/ services interventions across the continuum of care for CVD, CKD and Diabetes;
- To build capacity within community-controlled health services and mainstream health services to meet chronic disease needs;
- To establish a coherent policy agenda and a strategy for dissemination.
