The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

SYD­NEY: Im­pris­on­ment and self-harm rates have soared among Abo­rig­i­nal Aus­tralians, an of­fi­cial re­port said yes­ter­day as it slammed a lack of re­search into whether gov­ern­ment pro­grammes were ef­fec­tive at ad­dress­ing the is­sues fac­ing the com­mu­nity. The Pro­duc­tiv­ity Com­mis­sion re­port said vi­o­lence among Abo­rig­i­nal fam­i­lies and hos­pi­tal­i­sa­tions for self-harm “have stag­nated or wors­ened” in re­cent years. – AFP
