Contents Why do health inequities exist? -- Indigenous health inequities -- Elderly health -- Bridging the health gap
Summary Despite the best intentions, Indigenous life span and health expectancies are still significantly lower than the national average. For those aged 65 years or above, access to health services can also provide challenges. Why do these differences exist, and what can we do about them? This excellent program examines the forces that shape health needs and inequities, and the strategy, directions and actions that Australia's health services employ in an effort to bridge the gap. Featuring experts, patients and practitioners, this is a detailed and timely look at this important health issue
