|Report number||The Western Australian Aboriginal Child Health Survey, v. 3|
This report documents aspects of an extensive survey of the health, well-being, developmental and educational status of Western Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children. It focuses on the remediation of Indigenous disadvantage through family and community development programs. It calls for reform in the areas of policy, government, and service delivery. It identifies that changes are urgently needed in order to: optimise educational opportunities and outcomes; increase family functioning and improve economic circumstances and cultural connectedness; and reduce levels of stress.
