Summary
This volume describes health issues among First Nations people living in British Columbia. The first chapter details the impact which introduced European diseases had on many facets of Aboriginal life. Later chapters provided detailed statistical and empirical accounts of the health gap between Aboriginal populations and the non-Aboriginal population through attempts to deal with basic inequalities. The increased incidence of chronic diseases are detailed. As well various projects that are designed to deal with Aboriginal health issues in a culturally sensitive manner are described
