This chapter will critically examine the governance and management required to achieve inclusive and equitable health outcomes for ethnic minorities. The authors argue that management and governance of health systems are determined by performativity which is culturally determined. Inclusive healthcare systems require governance and management systems that build organisational cultural responsiveness. The chapter will visit and analytically unpack the key debates and issues relating to minorities and healthcare. Two case studies will be provided from Australia to illustrate the ways in which governance and management of healthcare systems can be more culturally responsive. The chapter will conclude with strategies for integration of minorities in healthcare governance and management systems.
