This report investigates the status of Aboriginal traditional medicine in Australia and assesses the extent that Aboriginal traditional medicine is recognised and integrated in the health care system. It provides a systematic response to the issues and challenges identified and establishes the foundations for the recognition of Aboriginal traditional medicine in Australia's Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health policy.
It proposes a new South Australian statewide policy framework which builds on the strengths of current arrangements and untangles the identified barriers. The proposed policy framework establishes a two-way health care model to guarantee Aboriginal traditional healting is systematically provided hand-in-hand with western medicine.
Please note: Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are advised that this report contains references to people who have since passed away.
