Journal Article

Abstract


  • There is an emerging interest and a developing evidence base about the

    significance of dementia within Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander

    communities across Australia. Poor Indigenous health status remains a

    fundamental issue, particularly when compared to New Zealand and North

    America where in the past ten years health inequities have begun to be

    successfully redressed. As the life expectancy of Indigenous Australians has

    started to increase beyond 45 years, the issue of dementia is becoming a

    priority health issue to address.
