about this publication

Abstract: A very important speech was given at the Lambie Dew Oration, Sidney University on 9 September 2004 on the health of Australian children and how only one percent of the national health budget goes on Indigenous health, although Indigenous people make up 2. 4% of the population. It is believed that institutional racism allows Aboriginal people to be denied an equal opportunity for primary health care, education, housing, employment and a life of dignity.
