About

To get involved and see what's going on have a look at our Facebook page, look at InVision or contact us.

Insight was started in 2004 by Dr Andrew Perry and Dr Stephanie Davis, two medical students at The University of Adelaide. They felt that there was a lack of available opportunities for medical students to gain an understanding and contribute towards alleviating the injustice of global health inequality.

Insight was established to address three aims as outlined in our Constitution:

  • To promote awareness and understanding of health issues in developing communities, and the multiple factors that contribute to these;
  • To provide and promote opportunities for active involvement within communities; and
  • To raise funds for various projects, both existing and created by Insight, to improve health inequalities.

In its infancy, Insight was a Subcommittee of the AMSS. As Insight grew, we gradually became much more autonomous and self-sufficient and in 2009, Insight became independent from the AMSS. The process of becoming independent allowed us to register Insight as a charity with the ACNC, and aligns with our growing focus on the inclusion of health students from all health disciplines. We now have members from many different professions, and in particular have a very strong medical and dental student profile.

Insight is now 12 years old, and we’re incredibly excited to see how it grows and changes into the future!
