This is the fourth in the CRC for Aboriginal Health’s Discussion Paper Series. This report summarises findings from a symposium held at the University of Melbourne in November 2007 that brought together key experts on racism and Indigenous health from Australia and Aotearoa (New Zealand). The report presents clear evidence that racism has a detrimental impact on the health of Indigenous peoples and endorses a cohesive research agenda to advance our understanding of the extent and nature of racism, and to improve our ability to combat racism as a threat to Indigenous health in Australia and Aotearoa.
