Our Patron - Michael Kirby

Michael Kirby, renowned human rights expert, a champion of HIV education and one of the most loved and controversial legal entities of our time, has accepted our invitation to become the first Patron of CRANAplus.

We are thrilled to make this announcement and we look forward to working with Michael Kirby, former Justice of the High Court, in our endeavours to promote the work of our organisation within and beyond the remote health sector.

Michael was the major keynote speaker at the 2012 CRANAplus conference in Cairns when he expressed his admiration for the work done by our organisation. He has been happy to champion our cause since that time.

He has been extremely busy since his retirement from the bench and most recently has been appointed Chair of the Human Rights Council Commission of Inquiry to investigate Human Rights violations in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.

We are thrilled to have such a prestigious Patron and we are confident that we will have a long and productive relationship.
