Summary
Investigates aspects of disease and the development of health services to Indigenous peoples from 1900 to 1940; argues that the 'natural history of disease' was important in influencing the interaction between Aboriginal people and government protectors, missionaries, partorialists and health workers; outlines how government intervention to control disease led to segregated programs and facilities; in turn official state protectionist policies, overcrowded settlements and inadequate health services intensified the effects of infectious diseases in Queensland and Western Australia
