This book highlights the health gap that exists between Indigenous and other Australians and proposes that one solution is to empower Indigenous Australians to take control of their own health and wellbeing. In particular, the book describes an Aboriginal family wellbeing model of empowerment which has been used successfully in programs across Australia. The book provides evidence for what can happen when communities accept change, and acknowledges the importance of future resourcing for empowerment programs which do make a difference in the lives of Indigenous Australians.
