Indigenous Australians experience one of the highest levels of health
inequality suffered by any group in a contemporary, developed society.
This chapter brings together sociological understandings of class and
other forms of social inequality with epidemiological and public health
analyses of inequality and health to illustrate why the health of Indigenous
Australians, while improving in some areas, remains obstinately poorer
than that of other Australians.
