Social Determinants of Indigenous Health

Synopsis

This groundbreaking study examines the social and political circumstances that have led to the "Fourth World" health standards of Australia's Indigenous population. Providing a systematic overview of the relationship between the social and political environment and health, leading researchers discuss the causes behind poor health outcomes and outline how such programs can be successful while reflecting on the long-term health effects that dispossession, colonial rule, and racism have had on the Indigenous people.
