By documenting the best evidence of the health status of Australia's indigenous people and linking this with policy and program implications, The Health of Indigenous Australians is an essential book for all people involved and interested in indigenous health. In particular, the book willassist the spectrum of people who need to make decisions about indigenous health - from policy makers and senior program managers to the whole range of health professionals (including indigenous health workers) - by providing knowledge gathered from an extensive range of sources.
Neil Thomson is at the Centre for Public Health, Edith Cowan University, Australia.
