The Indigenous population, which is comprised of mainland Aboriginal people and Torres Strait Islanders, live a very different reality from those in the general population. According to Ben Westcott, “on basic standards of living -- from health, to education, to employment -- Australia's Indigenous population is being left far behind” (“How Australia is Failing Its Indigenous Population”). The Indigenous population in Australia is suffering from structural violence due to a lack of basic essential needs and resources from their government. Health is one of the components which differentiate the Indigenous population compared to the general population. According to the statistics present in the article, the Indigenous population have a lower life expectancy by 10 years as well as higher infant and maternal mortality rates.
Colonial Identity DBQ In the 1600’s as the first English colonists were settling in America, there was little difference between the identities of the colonists and the identities of the citizens still in England. The colonists were very much still English citizens who just took an opportunity, whether it was to make money or practice their religion. As time wore on this changed, as the colonists in America dealt with many experiences very different from those living in England. This included dealings with aggressive natives and the overall struggle for survival. By 1763, at the end of the French and Indian war, it was clear that the identities of those in England and the colonists were very contrasting.
This problem was solved by increasing funding to HIP so that they may be able to provide more repairs and renovations to the American Indians. They addressed four key areas that they would like to see improved. The first, just improving the overall housing for American Indians. The second, to improve the data collection that records American Indian and Alaska Native homelessness, they don’t believe that it is as accurate as it is portrayed. The third, to ensure that there are strategies that work to help the American Indians and Alaska Natives homelessness, which includes meeting with tribal leaders and experts.
Was the British Empire a force for good? The British Empire had a huge impact globally. It can be argued that it was a “force for good” because British brought some positive changes such as roads, hospitals. They needed roads and hospital so they could have more workers and their kids were provided with health care. However it could be argued that the British rule had negative consequences.
However, pre-migratory social determinants have had a negative effect on the mental health of some immigrants. The research also shows that not many individuals from Latin America use the health facilities and there is a correlation between their non-use and their language barriers. Finally they posited that more research needs to be done on the mental health of Latino immigrants in Canada. However, it must reflect the diverse nature of the growing Latino population and not limited to one group like the literature
John Adams was not exactly like George Washington, despite working under him for over eight years. Adams first downfall was the Alien and Sedition Acts. These acts were the most bitterly contested acts of our nation yet. Our nation was designed to be a safe place for immigrants and people in general to live- the nation as a whole was built from refugees from England- yet these acts prevented our country from being able to do that. Although he was not perfect, he truly tried to be fair.
Both colonists settled in modern day America for different reasons but were driven by the same ambitions for a new life that would determine how long the colony would last. Their relationships with the Native Americans also had a key role in the survival of the colonies as well as how they familiarized themselves with new conditions. Ultimately, Plymouth created a larger impact on modern US history, and due to their relations with Native Americans, they created a lasting survival and economy. Jamestown, being the first successful colony, faced problems that decimated most of its settlers. The
Canadian health services delivery has not been sufficient in serving Aboriginal women. Practices and policies of the system has continue to marginalize many aboriginal women in the health care structure (indigenous women, 2005), this is structural violence. “Determinant of health such as gender, cultural heritage, aboriginal status is influenced by the quality and quantity of a variety of resources that a society makes available to its members” (Donna, Jessie, Susan, Buffy, 2008). Many Aboriginal women have low self-esteem (Indigenous politics, 2005), these “internal struggles” have led to many health and social related problems such as alcohol and drug abuse (YWCA Canada). In 2001 the life expectancy was 77 years for Aboriginal women (YWCA
If these issues aren’t resolved then this patient will continue to have these issues. This is known as the ‘upstream downstream’ principle. In this cause the living environment and education would be the upstream issues which may not be as obvious to see however the chest infections would be the downstream problem. If this patient is only treated for the primary problem then in the long term will cost the state more and will have negative effects on their health. The travelling community are one group of people who often have very poor health outcomes due to poor determinants of health.
Health outcomes refers to the effect healthcare activities have on an individual, group or population. It 's evident that even with the presence of anti-discrimination and equal opportunities legislation, Indigenous Australians have inferior health outcomes than non-Indigenous Australians. The dissimilarities in health status between Native and non-Native Australians are closely linked with the allocation of health determinants such as income levels and housing conditions, education levels and access to healthcare services. Income levels and housing conditions can easily be identified as an important determinant of health. Many health outcomes, including life expectancy and infant mortality can be associated with inequalities of income distribution
Difficulties as a Christian We live on a very diverse continent that all began during the early settlements (15 – 50BC). This early settlement began with the Bering straight, this brought over early migrants with completely different cultures to establish land in the western hemisphere. New England was settled by stable families and supported by agriculture; they had a healthier climate and a stronger religious government. However after the land was starting to be established during the 1620’s religious disputes started to establish between the puritans, separatists, Anglicans, and Christians. Every settler coming across on a ship expressed different religious views and the rules along with the regulations to follow within that religion were all different and based on Constructing The American Past rules within any religion were taken very seriously and a harsh punishment was given if anyone did not obey.
