[Extract] Bono conducted a talk for the "TED" community in 2013 about extreme poverty, health and inequality in Africa. The level of poverty amongst Australia's poor and socially disadvantaged pales in comparison. What is most concerning, however, is that poverty at all in Australia seems inconceivable because it is a developed nation, with one of the world's richest economies. Nonetheless, when applying the Australian measures of poverty, health and social disadvantage, it becomes clear that poverty is very real in some Australian populations, particularly among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. In parts of remote Australia, poverty rates reach almost 54%.
