Torres Strait Islanders are natives who are from Torres Island in Queensland Australia. They are different from Aboriginal (inborn of Tasmania Island of Australia). These two communities have a divergence in culture, past history, and identification.
The distinction between the health of natives and foreign populations continues to be prevalent across Australia. Natives have a mortality rate (10.6 years less for males and 9.5 years less for females) and unhealthy outcomes than the non-natives. According to Vos et al., 70% of the health difference between the two Australian groups is established by noncontagious chronic diseases, with heart disease leading (23%), diabetes (12%), mental disorders (10%), and incessant breathing disease (9%). Natives frequently engage in unhealthy behaviours, such as alcohol and drug abuse, which made them vulnerable to communicable diseases.
Cultural Safety: Entails all educational outcomes, which define, better and empower the cultural identity, activities, and wellbeing of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander individuals. It improves the delivery of health services by empowering the service user to take full advantage of the health care services provided. “According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), 1948, health is a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being.” Healthy living is the steps, actions, and strategies we use to achieve health and well-being.
