Abstract

Tackling the clinical, social, cultural, communication, and research determinants of health together

The news on Indigenous health is not all bad. We know that lack of progress in Closing the Gap is unacceptable,1 and attention has turned to social determinants as the principal barriers to Indigenous health equity, as highlighted in this and previous issues of the MJA by Michael Marmot.2,3 As in this issue of the Journal, however, we can reflect on the past not only as an admonishment, but also as guide to moving forward in a coherent manner.
