The First Peoples Disability Network report on human right frameworks – highlights how data collection based on individual aspects of a person’s identity (i.e. Indigenous status or disability) does not fully capture the composite rights of Indigenous peoples who are also marginalised due to other aspects of their identity (February 2016). Human rights frameworks and applied public policy needs greater sensitivity to issues of intersectional risk to ensure that the composite rights to health and appropriate care of all Indigenous peoples are secured. The report is entitled: Intersectional Dimensions on the Right to Health for Indigenous Peoples – A Disability Perspective – FPDN.
