Suicide rates for young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people: the influence of community level cultural connectedness
CONCLUSION: We found that suicide mortality rates for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people in Queensland were influenced by community level culturally specific risk and protective factors.

These deficits require attention, and ongoing evaluation of outcomes is necessary.PMID:33940660 | DOI:10.5694/mja2.51048 (Source: Medical Journal of Australia)

Australia in 2030: what is our path to health for all?
We present an imagined future for 2030 where governance structures are designed to ensure transparent and fair behaviour from those in power and to increase the involvement of citizens in these decisions, including a constitutional voice for Indigenous peoples. We imagine that these changes were made by measuring social progress in new ways, ensuring taxation for public good, enshrining human rights (including to health) in legislation, and protecting and encouraging an independent media. Measures to overcome the climate crisis were adopted and democratic processes introduced in the provision of housing, education and comm...
