The AMA advocates on behalf of the medical profession and the public - operating at a federal level and within each state and territory. Interventions to address inequalities can be referred to as occurring upstream, midstream or downstream. Upstream determinants are those that occur at the macro level and include global forces and government policies. Midstream determinants are intermediate factors such as health behaviours while downstream determinants occur at the micro level and include one's genetics 1. Central to this is the recognition that not everyone has the same level of health or capacity to deal with their health problems, and it may therefore be important to deal with people differently in order to work towards equal outcomes. Australians generally have good health. Australia is consistently ranked in the top 10 of OECD nations in many areas, including life expectancy and mortality rates 2.

To assess this systematically, autistic children's simple response times were measured with auditory, visual, and tactile stimulation.

This dissertation contributes to the literature by addressing two population-level quantitative research questions pertaining to Indigenous peoples' physical and mental health, and a qualitative case study examining what factors maintain and improve Indigenous community health workers' mental wellness and access to mental health supports. First, this thesis establishes a link between being Indigenous and health-related quality of life using multivariate regressions, as well as decomposition techniques. Second, the relationship between having an ancestor who survived the Residential School System, and five physical and mental health outcomes, controlling for determinants of health are estimated using multivariate ordered logistic and logistic regressions.
