Aboriginal Australians, more particularly, endure more infirmities, are more prone to suffer from disability or impairment and poor wellbeing, and, consequently, will die much earlier than non-Aboriginal Australians (Carpenter & Tait, 2009). According to Connor-Fleming and Parker (2001), Aboriginal Australians also have higher rates of infant mortality and higher prevalence of death from violent, poisoning, accident, and, currently, cardiovascular diseases and diabetes.
