Aboriginal healthworkers are employed by primary health care services to help bridge the gap between the Western medical clinic and their own kin. Much controversy surrounds what they can and should be doing. Here, these healthworkers speak frankly about the state of Aboriginal primary health care in this country. Daily visits to homes of families whose health, in the broadest sense, continues to be eroded by the historical legacy of exclusion, cultural oppression and racism highlight the serious lack of professional recognition and support. These situations are bewildering and heart-rending. This powerful book portrays the unique healing practice offered by Aboriginal healthworkers and urges that practical steps be taken to bolster their holistic approach.
