The Checkup Podcast – Episode 16: Cultural and Legal Issues in Indigenous Health with Avelina Tarrago


Since the Closing the Gap initiative began 10 years ago, some progress has been made to improve the lives of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. But there is still work to be done in achieving equity in Indigenous health. In this episode, BN's Melissa Carius is joined by Avelina Tarrago to discuss the cultural and legal issues for health practitioners who have patients of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island background. Avelina is a barrister with North Quarter Lane Chambers in Brisbane, and President of the Indigenous Lawyers Association of Queensland.
