The Lancet, Australia’s Lowitja Institute Release Study On Aboriginal Health In 23 Countries

The Guardian: Indigenous health: wealthy nations not always better than developing countries
“Being indigenous in a wealthy country like Australia, the U.S., or Canada does not necessarily lead to better health outcomes compared to indigenous people living in disadvantaged countries, a landmark study has found. … [T]he Lancet collaborated with Australia’s national institute for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health research, the Lowitja Institute, to publish the report, which the authors say should be used as a blueprint for international policy reforms to improve the outcomes for indigenous people worldwide…” (Davey, 4/20).
