A National Disgrace: Violence against Women and Children in Indigenous Communities

Aboriginal and Islander Health Worker Journal
Volume 30 Issue 5 (Sept/Oct 2006)

Abstract: The key objectives of the Commonwealth government to prevent violence and abuse against women and children in the Aboriginal community are discussed. The most important prerequisite to produce sustained improvements in violence levels is the involvement of Indigenous people in decision-making at all levels. This depends on effective support for community development, so-called capacity building, including the provision of funds for training Indigenous leaders and staff.
