Summary "The burden of disease suffered by Indigenous Australians is estimated to be two-and-a-half times greater than the burden of disease in the total Australian population. Chronic diseases have a major impact on that burden. Indigenous Australians experience their onset at a far earlier age than other Australians. The major chronic diseases experienced by Indigenous people generally share common risk factors and are also influenced by cultural, socioeconomic, and environmental factors
"This program aims to assist health professionals to respond more effectively to the health and wellbeing needs of Indigenous adults. The program showcases particular projects that are making a difference: the Family Wellbeing Program at Yarrabah in Queensland; a diabetes self-management program developed by the Far North Queensland Rural Division of General Practice and currently run by Apunipima Cape York Health Council; and the Chronic Care Program developed by Dharah Gibinj Aboriginal Medical Service in Casino, NSW" -- container
