The Health heroes website shares real stories of Indigenous Australians working in the health sector, with the aim of attracting Indigenous students to consider careers in Indigenous health.

The website describes a range of careers available and how to get a job and qualifications. There are television and radio profiles of Aboriginal role models working in Aboriginal health. The Health heroes campaign is part of the Attracting more people to work in Indigenous health project, developed by the federal Department of Health and Ageing. The website also provides information about financial support and scholarships for study and training.
