Aboriginal road safety - a health lens project

 

Overview

Aboriginal road safety was identified as an area of priority for South Australia's Health in all policies (HiAP) initiative which is part of the South Australian strategic plan. This HiAP initiative provided the framework for cross-government partnerships which are often complex to develop. One of the key issues to be addressed through the Aboriginal road safety - a health lens project was the obtaining and retaining of a driver's licence for Aboriginal people which has an impact on education, employment opportunities, incarceration, and family activities. Diversionary programs instead of harsh penalties were also examined.
