This subject introduces students to Indigenous Australian perspectives on health and well-being, and Indigenous-community controlled models of health care. It explores the underlying historical, political, social, economic and cultural factors contributing to contemporary Indigenous ill-health. It considers relationships between race, racism and health care to further explain Indigenous health outcomes. Students will apply a cultural competence approach to personal and professional models of health. The subject draws comparative lessons from Canada and New Zealand in Indigenous health outcomes.
