Education as a Determinant of Indigenous Health (Beyond Bandaids, Chapter 3)

Beyond Bandaids is a collection of sixteen papers from the CRCAH Social Determinants of Aboriginal Health Workshop held in Adelaide in July 2004.

The monograph presents a perspective on how social and economic factors affect Indigenous Australians’ health and coincides with a growing interest in the topic, as embodied in the establishment of the Commission on the Social Determinants of Health (CSDH) in 2005 by the World Health Organization. Beyond Bandaids suggests fruitful directions for further inquiry into how these factors can be made more health promoting. Authors (individuals and/or groups) reviewed the literature on particular factors and made recommendations for the evolving CRCAH Social Determinants of Indigenous Health research program, discussed in the conclusion of this monograph.
