Description

This program focuses on the need for a comprehensive plan for the prevention, treatment and management of chronic disease. It also explains the Indigenous notion of health and explores how this might shape more effective intervention programs. The program stresses that the gap in life expectancy cannot be closed unless chronic disease issues are addressed in a way that values independence, cultural identity, and community responsibility.
