Abstract

Aim: Respiratory diseases are the leading cause of hospitalization(1) and the 4th leading cause of mortality of Aboriginal people accounting for 8.7 % of all deaths.(1) Despite this, there is limited understanding of Aboriginal Peoples' perspectives on respiratory health and community attitudes to services aimed at reducing the burden of disease. The aim of this study was to identify from an Aboriginal perspective individual and community knowledge and awareness of, and attitudes to, respiratory health.
