Abstract

The issue of “equal health” for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples involves a broad range of social determinants, in addition to physical health.

The formation of an Australian college of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health would allow a continuing authoritative conference of broad expert opinion, including that of Aboriginal health workers, to address health and social inequality.
