This Collection will address Advances in First Nations Injury in Injury Epidemiology, a peer-reviewed open access journal dedicated to advancing the scientific foundation for injury prevention and control.
First Nations peoples have occupied and cared for their ancestral lands since time immemorial. Ongoing colonisation continues to impact on First Nations communities globally, through significant health inequities, where injury is a leading cause of morbidity and premature mortality. Injuries are preventable, targeted co-designed research with First Nations communities is needed to understand and appreciate overall injury burden, but also for community owned and driven prevention and support programs.
This Collection supports and amplifies research related to the following Sustainable Development Goals: 3 - Good Health and Well-being, 10 - Reduced Inequalities, 11 - Sustainable Cities and Communities, 13 - Climate Action, and 16 - Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions.
