Abstract

Genetic health services are playing an increasingly important role in improving human health. Aboriginal people are underrepresented in such services despite a higher prevalence of a number of genetically determined conditions and evidence of willingness to access these services. Our grant will inform the development of effective models of genetic health service provision for Aboriginal people. This will improve health equity both now and in the future.
