Health

Many people from the coast fail to access appropriate health care for cultural and or historical factors for both mental and physical health services which in-turn directly affects community social and emotional wellbeing.

Social determinants that are particularly important to indigenous fishermen are:

  • Connection to land and culture
  • Acknowledgement of past policies which resulted in coastal people being removed from their lands and culture.
