Social and Cultural Determinants

Welcome to the HealthInfoNet section about the social and cultural determinants of health, and how they impact Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. Here you can find information about policies and strategies, resources, publications, programs and organisations that focus on social and cultural determinants. This section includes information on education, including early childhood education, primary and secondary school (including information on school attendance), as well as tertiary education like university. This section also covers employment and economic development, and includes information on income, unemployment and welfare. It also includes information on housing, home ownership, tenancy, and homelessness. In addition to these important social determinants of health, the section also focuses on historical and cultural factors that affect the health and wellbeing of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, including racism and discrimination, colonisation and colonialism, and Stolen Generations.

The funds provided by the Australian Department of Health enable good coverage of many areas, particularly those within the direct responsibility of the health system. However there are other health topics which require additional funding.

We seek your assistance to fund this topic to support us in helping to improve health outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
