Rural doctors and other rural health professionals have always been concerned about the health and welfare of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

With two thirds of all Indigenous Australians living in rural or remote areas, we are often on the frontline of Indigenous healthcare provision.

Because of this, we are acutely aware of the inequities suffered by Indigenous Australians and their communities in terms of health outcomes, chronic disease and life expectancy.

We all have a role to play when it comes to Closing the Gap.”

The Rural Doctors Association of Australia (RDAA )  has chosen National Reconciliation Week to launch its revised policy, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health, which puts forward actions that need to be taken by Australia’s governments and other stakeholders like RDAA to Close the Gap in Indigenous health outcomes.

RDAA President, Dr Adam Colza, said the policy “puts right at the centre” the need to recognise the fundamental importance of socio-economic, environmental and cultural factors in improving health outcomes of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

RDAA Press Release : Reconciliation — “at the heart” of Closing the Gap

The Rural Doctors Association of Australia (RDAA) says the crucial role of Australia’s journey towards reconciliation — in empowering Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and improving their health outcomes — should not be underestimated.

“We know that additional, special efforts are still required to raise the health status of Aboriginal and Torres Strait\ Islander people to that of other Australians” he said.

“Crucially, these efforts will not just rely on improving health infrastructure or improving access to healthcare alone.

“They must also include recognition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in Australia’s Constitution; recognition of Indigenous intergenerational trauma and the negative health effects that stem from it; and recognition of the importance of homeland, infrastructure, education, transport and employment on the health status of Indigenous Australians.

“These are not just throw-away lines — they are major determinants of health and well-being, and they must be factored into all strategies to better support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and communities.

“They are just as important to Closing the Gap as ensuring access to basic living conditions like clean and continuous water supply, good housing, functional sewerage systems, a reasonable diet and nutrition, and education.

“Other crucial factors that are key to improving health outcomes for Indigenous Australians include:

  • involvement, partnership and leadership from local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in determining the type of health services best suited to local needs and resources
  • support for Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Services
  • a culturally respectful and consultative approach to policy and program development on all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health issues
  • an ongoing commitment in the healthcare sector to improving cultural sensitivity and understanding, to ensure the health and hospital system does not deter Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people from seeking care.

“And we all have a responsibility to recognise the trauma that multiple generations of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have been through — and why reconciliation is so important for all of us in moving forward.”

The theme of National Reconciliation Week is Don’t Keep History A Mystery: Learn. Share. Grow. All Australians are being encouraged to learn more about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures and histories, to share that knowledge and help Australia grow as a nation.
