Examines whether reported sexual abuse and its associated demographic and health-related effects are different for aboriginal and non-aboriginal women. Finds that abuse may be associated with subsequent health behaviors, beyond specific physical and psychosocial disorders. Concludes that aboriginal and non-aboriginal women who have suffered sexual abuse showed substantial differences in their subsequent health and health-related behaviours. Includes references.
