Aboriginal health

Means not just the physical well-being of an individual but refers to the social, emotional and cultural well-being of the whole Community in which each individual is able to achieve their full potential as a human being, thereby bringing about the total well-being of their Community. It is a whole-of-life view and includes the cyclical concept of life-death-life.


A Population Health Approach (PHA)

Components:

  • Population focus

  • Understanding of the history, context and characteristics of the community

  • Identification of needs

  • Consideration of the determinants of health

  • Emphasis on promoting health and preventing disease as well as treating illness

  • Evidence based decision making

  • Multiple strategies

  • Collaborative approach

  • Evaluation and monitoring
