Racism Public hospitals Health services accessibility First Peoples health Workforce diversity South Australia

The purpose of the report is to assess the levels of institutional racism that Aboriginal people are subject to in South Australia’s local health networks (LHN). This purpose will be accomplished by employing an adapted form of the Matrix for Identifying, Measuring and Monitoring Institutional Racism within Public Hospitals and Health Services (the Matrix)(Marrie and Marrie 2014), referred to as the SA Health Matrix Template (SAHMT), to assess each of South Australia’s ten LHNs. The Matrix was specifically designed to address and contribute to our understanding of institutional racism which has been identified as a barrier to effective healthcare to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in the public health system.
