Letter to the Prime Minister of Australia

The National Rural Health Alliance this week wrote to Prime Minister John Howard about his emergency intervention of child abuse in Northern Territory aboriginal communities. Apart from our specific concerns about the emergency intervention, we have pointed to the social, cultural, political, historical and economic factors at the root of poor health and the sort of interpersonal violence reported in the Northern Territory. We hope that the government will begin to heed the past two decades of advice in creating appropriate consultation processes and infrastructures for employment, education, health, and security.
