Abstract

Chile and Australia have similar health care systems, levels of economic development and Indigenous demographics. Effective approaches to improve Chilean Aboriginal health may therefore be transferable to Australia. The research will examine barriers and facilitators to Aboriginal-centred health care practices within Chile and use these findings to understand how similar strategies may be applied to an Australian context and the possible benefits of successful implementation.
