This unit will provide students with a broad overview to Indigenous Health, and allow students to understand the social and political determinants of health, the research and data structures that measure and compare mainstream and Indigenous health, the WHO's 'Closing the Gap' projects, and post-colonialism by examining issues such as holistic health, including social and emotional well-being, land rights, the Stolen Generations, the Stolen Wages, and the NT Intervention from an Indigenous perspective. Participation in this unit will improve students' understanding of the health needs and perspectives of Indigenous people, and give them applied skills in cross-cultural proficiency that will foster success in working in Indigenous health in Aboriginal community controlled health services and strategies for delivery of effective Indigenous health services, communities, or public organisations.

1. Demonstrate an understanding of the social determinants of health, including post-colonial issues;
2. Interpret research and data collection in Indigenous health arenas;
3. Understand the diversity in Indigenous Australia, including rural and remote issues, urban health issues, socio-cultural issues, language groups and kinship structures;
4. Evaluate issues, develop arguments, and effectively communicate knowledges and concepts in relation to the position of Indigenous health and health care in a national and global settings through critical discussions, presentations and reflections; and
