The health of older New Zealanders in relation to housing tenure: analysis of pooled data from three consecutive, annual New Zealand Health Surveys.
CONCLUSIONS: Rental tenure is associated with poorer health. Implications for public health: Older renters tend to be economically disadvantaged and in poorer health than owner-occupiers. Over time, the proportion of older renters has been increasing. This will have implications for policy and for services in meeting the diverse care and support needs of older people. Higher rates of renting among Māori and Pacific people and older females means that these groups are particularly vulnerable to any negative impact of renting on health.

Are we closing the Aboriginal child injury gap? A cohort study.
Conclusions and Implications for public health: Our findings suggest that current injury prevention measures have not been successful in reducing either rates of unintentional injury in Aboriginal children, or injury inequalities between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal children. We recommend the implementation of targeted Aboriginal led injury prevention measures. PMID: 30720921 [PubMed - in process] (Source: Australian and New Zealand Journal of Public Health)

Educating for Indigenous public health competence - how do we stack up in Australia?
CONCLUSION: These findings highlight the need for inclusion of the Indigenous public health competencies to be made obligatory in MPH programs. Implications for public health: Significant gaps remain in public health curricula enabling students to develop competencies that enable them to become judgement safe practitioners when working with Indigenous peoples and communities. A revised curriculum framework document provides a range of useful strategies and resources to remedy these omissions.

Trends in hepatitis B prevalence and associated risk factors among Indigenous and non-Indigenous prison entrants in Australia, 2004 to 2013.
This study describes and compares prevalence trends of markers for hepatitis B (HBV) from 2004 to 2013 and HBV risk factors between Indigenous and non-Indigenous prison entrants. Methods A cross-sectional survey carried out over two weeks in 2004, 2007, 2010 and 2013 in reception prisons in New South Wales, Queensland, Western Australia and Tasmania. Results The study included 2,223 prison entrants; 544 were Indigenous. Indigenous prison entrants had significantly higher hepatitis C core antibody (anti-HBc) prevalence than non-Indigenous prisoners in 2004 (29% vs. 18%, P=0.026), 2007 (40% vs. 15%, P

A national profile of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Workers, 2006-2016.
CONCLUSION: There are pressing concerns regarding the lack of growth and the ageing workforce of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Workers. We remain concerned that little is being done to increase the retention and recruitment of this workforce. Implications for public health: Greater effort is needed to improve the recruitment and retention of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Workers, particularly for younger age groups and males.

Potential sources of cessation support for high smoking prevalence groups: a qualitative study.
Conclusions The results suggest that doctors are an important group to consider when developing cessation interventions for disadvantaged smokers due to their recognised ability to provide practical and emotional support. However, efforts are needed to ensure doctors are aware of the benefits of cessation for these groups. Community service organisations appear to be another potentially effective source of cessation support for disadvantaged smokers. Implications for public health The results indicate that cessation interventions among high-priority groups should endeavour to provide personalised emotional and practical su...

Abstract OBJECTIVE: To examine the impacts of social integration and loneliness on the mental health of humanitarian migrants (HMs) in Australia over time. METHODS: A total of 1,723 HMs who held permanent visas from the first to third waves (2013-2016) of a longitudinal study in Australia (Building a New Life in Australia) were included in the study. Dependent variables included poor general health, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and severe mental illness (SMI). Predictors were social integration stressors and loneliness.

What young Australians think about a tax on sugar-sweetened beverages.
CONCLUSIONS: Most young adults supported the idea of a tax on SSBs if tax revenue would be used to support healthy eating or physical activity. If a tax was introduced, most indicated that they would reduce their SSB consumption and substitute water for SSBs. Implications for public health: Policymakers can expect support from young people should an SSB tax be introduced in Australia.

CONCLUSION: There are important disparities in the health and wellbeing profiles of different sexual minority populations in Australia, based on sex (male vs. female), sexual identity (gay/lesbian vs. bisexual), and observation time (2012 vs. 2016).

CONCLUSIONS: We identified considerable variation in the use of data linkage to inform communicable disease surveillance and control activities between jurisdictions.

"No-one's driving this bus" - qualitative analysis of PrEP health promotion for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander gay and bisexual men.
CONCLUSIONS: Aboriginal community and gay community controlled health organisations need to collaborate to ensure they deliver effective and tailored health promotion to Aboriginal communities. Implications for public health: The rising HIV notification rates in Aboriginal Australians is an example of the health gap experienced by First Nation people. Effective HIV prevention is required to ensure this gap does not widen further, and that Australia meets its goal of preventing all new HIV infections. However, these efforts will be hampered by ineffective health promotion of HIV prevention tools, such as PrEP, for Aborigina...

'Punching above their weight': a qualitative examination of local governments' organisational efficacy to improve the social determinants of health.
CONCLUSIONS: Victorian local government has strongly adopted the socio-ecological model of health and is aware of the important role that its diverse policy and program areas play in creating healthy communities. The Victorian State Government's priorities, which adopted a more 'downstream' approach, were less influential. Implications for public health: State governments' priority settings should be responsive to local governments' unique local knowledge of health priorities. There is value in legislating a social determinants role for local government, provided it is supported by state and national government policies th...

A thematic content analysis of how marketers promote energy drinks on digital platforms to young Australians.
CONCLUSIONS: Energy drinks were popular on digital platforms, as evidenced by the large volume of user-engagement (e.g. 'likes' and 'comments') especially on social networking sites. Energy drink brands appear to target young people, given that the marketing appeals are likely attuned with young people's desires or aspirations. Implications for public health: To counter the effects of digital marketing on young people's health, regulations are needed to safeguard adolescents and young adults, as well as younger children, and consideration should be given to including all forms of marketing communication platforms, includin...

CONCLUSIONS: Abortion law in NSW is out of step with contemporary community views. Residents are largely unaware that it remains a criminal offence and, when informed, support decriminalisation.
