The first edition of this book was called ‘remarkable’, ‘courageous’, ‘easy reading’ and ‘a must have’. This second edition of Australia’s Rural and Remote Health: A social justice perspective offers 80 new pages of deeper and broader insights into Indigenous health, chronic disease and population health to make it essential reading for those planning to work in rural, remote and Indigenous Australia.

In plain English, this unique book explains the concepts, questions the bureaucratic systems, and explores the opportunities for change in a frank, engaging and insightful way. It paints real faces on to the rural, remote and Indigenous health landscape using innovative storytelling techniques, historical accounts and real-life experience, supported by the broad literature.

Australia’s Rural and Remote Health: A social justice perspective tackles the difficult issues of racism, culture, genocide, Indigenous health, human rights, cultural safety, social capital and workforce issues, and offers practical solutions for students to apply. Using a primary health care framework it then weighs these issues against the impacting statistics, politics, policies and practices, in a practical and user-friendly way.

This provocative and heartfelt book will help rural health students, practitioners, policy makers and educationalists from many disciplines to find their way across the sunburnt country.
