National Indigenous Health Plan to focus on outcomes

Date posted: 3 June 2014

Acknowledging Reconciliation Week, Assistant Minister for Health Fiona Nash last week announced that an implementation plan for the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Plan would be developed by the end of the year.

The Health Plan is a 10-year evidence-based framework developed with significant input from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health leaders and service providers. The Health Plan is designed to guide policy and programme development to improve Indigenous health and achieve health equality by 2031.

Minister Nash advised that the Health Plan would be updated to reflect the Government’s approach and priorities for Indigenous affairs, education, employment, community safety and health.

Minister Nash said she recognised the important work that had gone into developing the Health Plan and thanked the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, stakeholders, peak groups, and representative organisations who contributed to the framework. 'The implementation plan will outline the Commonwealth’s blueprint for coordinated efforts to improve Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health outcomes. We will work in partnership with service providers, including States and Territories and stakeholders,' said Minister Nash.
