Health services, racism and Indigenous health: gaining traction for systemic change



This two-day event is presented by the Network of Poche Centres for Indigenous Health (Flinders University - Adelaide and Alice Springs - and The University of Sydney), Wardliparingga Aboriginal Research Unit at the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI), and the Southgate Institute for Health, Society and Equity at Flinders University. A number of sessions will examine Aboriginal experience of health services in South Australia and the NT. Additionally, though, both days will draw from - and inform - a wider, pan-Indigenous purview. An exciting array of presenters and other participants are already confirmed from New Zealand, Australia, Canada, Hawaii and Norway.

The symposium (day one) is open to all: it will raise the issues and begin discussions about how to gain traction for change. Day two is an invited round table, designed for scholars, health and human services practitioners, public servants, Non government organisations (NGOs) and Indigenous community and health organisation representatives. This will be a facilitated round table, whose sessions address the issues raised in day one, and look to chart a workable way forward.
