Hand-in-Hand. Report on Aboriginal traditional medicine

Abstract

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.
