LIVING SAFELY

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are three times more likely to die from injury and accident than other Australians. Rates are almost twice as high for Indigenous people living in rural and remote communities. This half hour program shows four successful initiatives addressing the environmental and social factors behind the high rates of accident and injury in Indigenous communities: Cherbourg - Queensland, Amata - South Australia, Alice Springs and a burns prevention program in Central Australia.
