In the Indigenous Health Minor, students explore, analyse and deconstruct disciplinary and lived perspectives, impacts and outcomes for Australian Aboriginal individuals and communities in the 21st Century. Topics that are explored include history, human rights, traditional owners, sovereignty, governance and societal structures, and colonial systems of power through a series of multi-disciplinary units and how these influence and impact the health outcomes of Australian Aboriginal populations and communities. In addition to this students will explore contemporary community interventions used by Australian Aboriginal organisations and communities and their relationship to the conventional western medicine construct and mainstream service provision.
