This subject enhances students' understanding and awareness of the issues related to the health of Indigenous people, particularly Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. Students are given the opportunity to explore their own personal and professional beliefs and attitudes in relation to working alongside Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women and babies. Students examine the ways that colonialism has impacted, and continues to impact, on the health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people through cultural, political and socio-economic circumstances. Primary health care initiatives and community development approaches that have been implemented to address the health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women and babies in Australia as well as Indigenous people in other countries are also examined.
