Formatted abstract
• In the next Australian Health Survey, Indigenous people under 18 years of age will be 
  excluded from direct clinical measurements and laboratory tests.
• Indigenous people of all ages were to be excluded from the opportunity, offered to other
  Australians, to donate blood and urine samples to a national repository. This component
  has now been abandoned for the whole cohort.
• This sets perilous precedents of exclusion from opportunities available to all other  
  Australians, and deprives the medical community of information that could inform  
  strategies to improve health profiles and outcomes in this seriously disadvantaged group.
