Context

Improving the health status of Aboriginal and To
es Strait Islander peoples in Australia is a
longstanding challenge for health services and governments in Australia. While there have been
improvements on some measures of Aboriginal and To
es Strait Islander health status, they have not
matched the rapid health gains made in the general population in Australia. The inequality in health
status experienced by Aboriginal and To
es Strait Islander peoples is linked to systemic
discrimination. This has been identified as a human rights concern by United Nations committees;
and acknowledged as such by Australian governments.

You will gain skills in producing an informative and engaging report, improve your ability to effectively
and accurately communicate information, increase your knowledge and understanding of Aboriginal
and To
es Strait Islander health and improve your academic skills.

This assessment will advance your evidence evaluation, critical analysis and report writing skills which
may be transferable to report writing and delivery in the professional context. Designing and
delivering reports also develops competency in advocacy for health problems.


Task Instructions

1. You need to identify one health issue that impacts Aboriginal and/or To
es Strait Islander
peoples and discuss:
 the historical perspective
 why it is an issue
 extent/magnitude of the issue
 whether it is a universal issue or geographically limited
 whether there are contributing factors to this particular health issue; such as
stereotyping and racial attitudes.

2. You are expected to discuss contemporary evidence-based strategies being used to address
this health issue and whether the health outcomes for Aboriginal and To
es Strait Islander
people are improving or not.

To complete this assessment task you must write a report discussing and critically analysing the
cu
ent issue as outlined above.

The report is to include references and therefore research using credible sources (textbooks, peer
eviewed scientific journal articles, and .edu, .gov and .org webpages) is expected.

The report must adhere to the structure guidelines provided in the document in Assessment 2
esources.

Please refer to the attached assessment ru
ic when preparing your report.

Introduction
Native communities were among the first human civilization that colonized Australian land; however, with the transition of time, they are now one of the most neglected communities. Aboriginal and To
es Strait Islander communities have been reported to experience higher mortality rate compared to non-indigenous communities. This is majorly because indigenous communities were suppressed, discriminated and had to suffer violence since British colonized Australian land. This report would focus upon respiratory diseases among Aboriginal and To
es Strait Islander communities. Further, efforts would be made to identify the historical perspective behind this health issues and its extent within community. The report will conclude with effectiveness of the evidence-based strategies implied to address chosen health issue.
Health Issue That Impacts Aboriginal And To
es Strait Islanders
    Respiratory diseases have been reported to be one of the most prominent health issue among Aboriginal and To
es Strait Islander communities. Within 2012-2013, 31% of individuals from these communities have been reported to suffer from some form of respiratory disease. Further, these communities have higher morality as well as mo
idity rate majorly due to respiratory diseases such as, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), asthma, invasive pneumococcal disease and pneumonia. According to the report presented by Australian department of Health, it was evident that chronic respiratory diseases were found to be responsible for 9% of total diseases burden among all indigenous Australians. Further, out of these, asthma and COPD alone were responsible for 38% and 43% of this burden, respectively.
Further, one-fifth of indigenous children, aging between 0-14 years were reported to suffer from long-term respiratory condition in 2012-2013. Likewise, indigenous children were two times more likely to be admitted for certain respiratory diseases such as influenza, asthma, whooping cough, acute respiratory infection and much more. This s majorly because indigenous communities have always been neglected and discriminated by modern or non-indigenous population. Higher level of respiratory diseases among Aboriginal and To
es Strait Islander communities reflects a
oad range of contributing factors, which could be direct as well as indirect and all of these factors are discussed below.
Historical Perspective of the Health Issue
    As presented above also,
oad range of contributing factors affect the persistence of respiratory diseases with in indigenous communities and historical perspective is one of the most essential factor. Indigenous population was fragmented when British colonized Australian land and indigenous communities were forced to move towards remote areas. Indigenous communities have always lived and respected their religion, culture, rituals, languages and land. However, due to colonization they had to leave their lands and move away from modern world. This not only took them away from all health services but also from health education and general awareness. Therefore, negative health outcomes could be linked to other su
ounding factors such as increased stress, smoking, alcohol consumption, homelessness, loss of land and identity, racism, discrimination and much more.
Lack of education could also be...
