While the overall health of Australians is good, health is distributed unevenly in Australia
Assignment 2
Essay
Background Information
While the overall health of Australians is good, health is distributed unevenly in Australia. Some subgroups of the Australian
population do worse than others – in some cases much worse! Aboriginal Australians have been recognised as a sub-group of the
population who are generally less healthy than other Australians. For example, Aboriginal people die at much younger ages and at
faster rates, and have more disability and a lower quality of life than non-Aboriginal Australians. This assignment requires you to
investigate this issue.
