The CRCAH held a Roundtable in November 2007 to discuss issues around the physical and emotional health of Aboriginal prisoners in partnership with the Public Health Association of Australia and the Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Affairs. The Roundtable was prompted by the stubbornly high rates of Aboriginal incarceration in jails around Australia, and the effect this has not only on the health of individual prisoners but also on their families and communities. This paper provides an overview of the Roundtable discussion and the five research priorities that emerged from the discussion, as well as identifying policy levers that could act as tools for change.
