'Not a Problem!' - the Role of Denial in Good and Bad Indigenous Health

Aboriginal and Islander Health Worker Journal
Volume 21 Issue 5 (Sept/Oct 1997)

Abstract: Aboriginal people may be free from sentiments of colonization, segregation and assimilation and moving towards promoting self-determination and self-management but health statistics indicate that minimal improvement or progress has been made along many indicators labelling the situation as 'fourth world'. It is time everybody fights this battle in their own ways but the goal is towards improving, promoting and maintaining of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health.
