|Book title||When culture impacts health: global lessons for effective health research|
The day to day operations of Australia's socioeconomic, racial, and cultural hierarchies have health consequences for Indigenous Australians. Comparing the socioeconomic and demographic positioning of Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians, this book explores how the operations and control of the health system impact on Indigenous Australians. The consequences of the ontological (way of 'being') gap between the two are demonstrated in relation to the collecting of Indigenous status data for health statistics.
