Indigenous Australians, but in particular, those of the Stolen Generations have always had a tough time socially, economically and healthwise.

A new study has uncovered just how much disadvantage these Indigenous Australians go through and found Stolen Generations members are in much poorer health than other Indigenous Australians and were 1.5 times more likely to have been arrested.

The Healing Foundation has worked with the Australia Insitute of Health and Welfare to produce the study and plans to use the findings from this study to produce an action plan to present to the federal government later this year in the hopes of turning around some of these statistics.
