BACKGROUND TO TASK:
According to Stoneham, Goodman and Daube (2014), one factor impacting on the relationship of Indigenous Australians with mainstream society is the media portrayal of Indigenous people and issues, in this unit the issue is health. These authors’ examined media portrayals of Indigenous Australians’ public health issues in selected media over a 12-month period.
Before starting assessment 3 read the article titled “The Portrayal of indigenous health in selected Australian media” that you can find in a CDU library search. Notice the comments in the notes and discussion section. Balvin and Kashima (2012) and Larson, Gillies, Howard and Coffin (2007) cited in Stoneham, Goodman and Daube (2014) note that that negative news reporting impacts on the self –esteem Australian Indigenous people and perpetuates Indigenous stereotypes within mainstream society. Larson et al., argue that this is discrimination and a determinant of health and that until change occurs in the perception of the dominant Australian culture, public health, education and employment opportunities will be at risk for Indigenous Australians.
This assignment draws on the work of Stoneham, Goodman and Daube (2014) to provide a framework for you to examine current health and well-being issues related to the health of Australian Indigenous peoples.
