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.

How does freedom of religion and belief affect health and wellbeing? /

by Klocker, Natascha | VicHealth | Trenerry, Brigid | Webster, Kim.

Publisher: Carlton, Vic. VicHealth 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: March 2011 Bibliography pp. 97-100 Appendices pp. 101-119Summary: This report presents the findings of an evidence review prepared by Dr Natascha Klocker, Brigid Trenerry and Kim Webster for VicHealth, which explores the relationship between freedom of religion and belief, and health and well being. As Australia has become increasingly culturally diverse, there has also been an increase in religious diversity. The report provides evidence that religion and belief, religious discrimination and race-based discrimination all impact on health in various ways. Although there is strong evidence of a range of positive mental health outcomes, the relationship between religion/belief and physical health is less clear. Despite some shortcomings in the literature reviewed, it has been possible to conclude that individuals of faith who experience religious freedom have the potential to experience a range of positive health effects that may be associated with their religion/belief.Availability: (1)
