Maridulu Budyari Gumal, otherwise known as the Sydney Partnership for Health, Education, Research and Enterprise, or SPHERE, draws its ranks from 14 thought-leading organisations across the Sydney basin – universities, hospitals, research institutes, community and primary care centres.

It utilises their combined resources, including 50,000-odd staff, 100,000-plus students and more than $5 billion in annual revenue, to ‘start new conversations, explore new avenues and … [create] a new kind of healthcare’ that takes into account Indigenous people’s needs, priorities and ways of working, learning and connecting.
