Description

This report presents a review of injury prevention purchasing priorities for the Department of Health, Western Australia in 2010 and identifies several areas of injury that are especially topical in Indigenous populations. Priorities included:

In these injury areas, Indigenous people experience higher rates of injury than non-Indigenous people. Injury in Aboriginal people is closely linked to other issues, such as alcohol, socio-economic status, risk-taking behaviour and isolation. When considering prevention strategies, these factors are important determinants of health to consider.
