Building on Our Strengths : a framework to reduce race-based discrimination and support diversity in Victoria. Summary report /

by Victorian Health Promotion Foundation.

Publisher: Carlton, Vic. Victorian Health Promotion Foundation 2009Description: 56 p. : col. ill. ; 30 cm.Other title: Building on our strengths : summary report.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: "Addressing the social and economic determinants of mental and physical health" Victorian Health Promotion Foundation commonly known as VicHealth Full report only available online. Includes bibliography.Summary: Building on our strengths: a framework to reduce race-based discrimination and support diversity in Victoria has been developed through a partnership between the Victorian Health Promotion Foundation (VicHealth), the Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission, the McCaughey Centre: VicHealth Centre for the Promotion of Mental Health and Community Wellbeing and the Onemda VicHealth Koori Health Unit. The McCaughey Centre and Onemda are both in the School of Population Health at the University of Melbourne. ; Drawing on the best available evidence in Australia and internationally, this report outlines themes, strategies and priority settings for the development and implementation of activity to reduce race-based discrimination and support diversity. Although recognising that discrimination has a specific meaning in law, this report takes a broader approach, being concerned with behaviours and practices that result in avoidable and unfair inequalities across groups in society based on race, ethnicity, culture or religion. ; Despite widespread support for diversity among Victorians, the data presented in this report indicate that race-based discrimination remains unacceptably high. These findings are of particular concern given increasing evidence that race-based discrimination impacts negatively on both individuals and the community. This includes evidence of links with ill-health and reduced productivity, social inclusion and community cohesion. Reducing race-based discrimination will be critical if the Victorian and Australian governments are to meet their commitments to achieve equitable health for all Australians and, in particular, to eliminate the gaps in health, social and economic status between people from Indigenous and non-indigenous backgrounds. ; Building on our strengths is driven by the goal of achieving sustainable reductions in race-based discrimination, with associated medium- and long-term benefits to individuals, organisations, communities and society. It is intended for broad usage across government, corporate, non-government and community sectors as a useful resource in policy and program development, implementation and evaluation.

From Angela?s Ashes to the Celtic Tiger : early life conditions and adult health in Ireland /

by Delaney, Liam | McGovern, Mark | Smith, James P.

Publisher: Bonn, Germany Institute for the Study of Labor 2009Description: PDF.Notes: IZA DP No. 4548Summary: We use data from the Irish census and exploit regional and temporal variation in infant mortality rates over the 20th century to examine effects of early life conditions on later life health. Our main identification is public health interventions which eliminated the Irish urban infant mortality penalty. Estimates suggest that a unit decrease in mortality rates at time of birth reduces the probability of being disabled as an adult by between .03 and .05 percentage points. We find that individuals from lower socio economic groups had marginal effects of reduced infant mortality twice as large as those at the top.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
