An opportunity to transform Australia’s neo-colonial health system
The “modern” VBHC movement provides an opportunity to not only reform healthcare towards a more equitable, community centred system, but to also acknowledge, honour and learn from global Indigenous knowledges, systems, and ways of valuing knowing, being and doing. For Australia as a settler-colonial state, efforts to implement VBHC here are doomed to fail until the continued legacy of settler-colonial violence and systemic racism pervading Australia’s healthcare system is acknowledged, addressed and ameliorated.
