This book investigates health status and the use of health care including biomedicine, herbal medicine, acupuncture, and health food among Koreans in Australia and their relationships with those of Koreans in their homeland. The study addresses social change in Korea and its impact on people's health and on the supply and demand for biomedicine and Korean traditional herbal medicine. It also explores social origins of Korean migration to Australia, the settlement of Koreans in Australia with reference to work involvement and immigrant life, and the relationships between work, health status, and health care use from the perspectives of the Korean immigrants as well as the providers of biomedical and Korean traditional medicine.
