Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet abstract

This background paper focuses on public health issues for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and sets out a framework as part of the National Public Health Action Plan for children 2005-2008. The aim of this paper was to stimulate discussion about the development of a national approach to the public health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children. An overview of the evidence of the health disparities experienced by these children is presented, and important policy initiatives, relevant to the health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children are set out. This component of the action plan for children will aim to reflect the value of cultural identity, a holistic concept of health and healing, and will focus on children as part of an intergenerational concept of family.
