National Drug Strategy abstract
The National Strategic Framework builds on the National Aboriginal Health Strategy (1989) (view Framework and Strategy documents). It draws together nationally agreed strategies to address specific health problems, state and territory policies and plans and the national collaborative policy and planning frameworks within which Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health programs are managed. The report details nine principles on which the National Strategic Framework is based and describes three central desired outcomes:
towards a more effective and responsive health system;
influencing the health impacts of the non-health sector; and
providing the infrastructure to improve health status.
The conclusion describes the implementation and evaluation plans and identifies the responsible organisations.
