The Essentialness of a Homelands Birthing Program for the Community of Palm Island

Aboriginal and Islander Health Worker Journal
Volume 27 Issue 6 (Nov/Dec 2003)

Abstract: Palm Island is a Northern Queensland remote Indigenous community and according to the health service files, here 40% are under 18 years of age complemented by an average of 65 new babies being born to Palm Island mothers annually which shows that the futures of these Indigenous maternal and infant clients are at major risk. This defines the essentialness of the implementation of a Homelands Birthing Program for Palm Island.
