A mega-wrap of public health and policy reading from Croakey contributors

Croakey readers are welcome to sign up for (rather irregular) summaries of posts. If you’d like to join the mailing list, please send your email or leave it below.

Here is the latest compilation, covering articles posted between 11 April and 3 September. As always, thanks are due to the many contributors who generously volunteer their time to research and write articles.

The latest readership figures are available here, showing that Croakey has had 95,554 unique visitors so far this year. You can also see snapshots showing the ten links that received the most hits, over this period and over the previous three months (the Naked Doctor column by Justin Coleman has drawn a lot of attention).

The links below have been grouped into these categories:

  • Racism and health
  • Indigenous health
  • The unhealthy trifecta: tobacco, alcohol and pokies
  • General public health matters
  • Rural and remote health
  • Mental health
  • Journal watch (public health highlights)
  • Social determinants of health
  • Primary health care and Medicare Locals
  • Health reform and health policy
  • Aged care reform
  • Dental reform
  • Social media and media-related issues
