Abstract

Senator Graham Richardson's visit to the Top End in January 1994 was followed by a spate of press reports dwelling on the widening gap in morbidity and mortality between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal' Australians2 and Aboriginal people's Third World living conditions3. During the first half of 1994 and the leadup to the Territory election several prominent issues could be identified but none more so than Aboriginal health funding and which tier of government had responsibility for delivering health services.
