Chronic Disease

High rates of chronic health conditions do not occur in isolation, rather health inequalities are shaped by— and rooted in—the inseparable relationship between health and generations of racist colonial policies. The effects of colonization have resulted in a legacy of environmental dispossession, degradation of the land, substandard living conditions, inadequate access to health services, social exclusion and dislocation from community, language, land, and culture.
