Health issues for aboriginal youth : social and cultural factors associated with resilience.
Australian Rotary Health Research Fund. International symposium. Canberra (AUS), 1992/11.
Research into Aboriginal health has tended to focus on the morbidity of babies and young children, or on the chronic illnesses of adults.
Adolescent Aborigines are rarely the target of health research.
While health services for Aboriginal people, even in remove areas, have improved enormously over the last few years with the provision of Aboriginal-controlled organizations, health services alone do not prevent the major causes of morbidity.
In any case, young people, particularly adolescent boys, are poor users of these facilities.
The major causes of adolescent Aboriginal morbidity and mortality are preventable: they have to do with ways of living, with the social, cultural and physical environments which surround adolescents.
