It has been well documented that the health status of many Aboriginal people remains the poorest in Australia despite many years of research, policies and interventions. The third edition of "Binan Goonj: Bridging Cultures in Aboriginal Health 3e" explores the processes and practices which have created this situation and looks to provide practical strategies to work towards redressing it. Extensively adopted as a teaching text across Australia, Binan Goonj provides coverage of essential Aboriginal health topics in an accessible manner. This edition challenges the reader to examine their own values, the relativity of values and the use of power in society with a writing style that will engage readers from a range of backgrounds. Thoroughly updated and revised the third edition of "Binan Goonj: Bridging Cultures in Aboriginal Health 3e" provides current up-to-date literature addressing the complexity and multidisciplinary topics of Indigenous Health.
