Reflections on Indigeneity, Gender and Health in Australia
Free Public Lecture
B1 Lecture Theatre 1
207 Bouverie Street, Carlton
The research that the presentation is based on offers a contribution to the larger conversation that needs to be had, to develop a broader understanding of Indigenous gendered health and wellbeing and what needs to happen in bringing about positive health outcomes for Indigenous peoples in Australia. Future research is needed to not only describe the situation of gendered Indigenous health and wellbeing, but to involve Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women and men in the ways that health services serve this community. More work needed to build strong evidence of what works in improving gendered Indigenous health outcomes.
