Indigenous: States and Territories

2014

Holman D, Joyce SJ (2014)

A promising future: WA Aboriginal health programs: review of performance with recommendations for consolidation and advance.

Perth, WA: Department of Health, Western Australia

This report, also known as 'The Holman review', evaluated the effectiveness of state-funded Indigenous health programs in Western Australia (WA), focusing on the measurement and achievement of clinical health outcomes. The report examined 184 Indigenous health programs and found that the majority deliver value for money and are underpinned by scientific evidence. It also found that primary prevention programs are under-funded relative to their significance and that service delivery in regional areas is fragmented. The report recommends that changes be made to the way the WA Department of Health funds and contracts Indigenous health services. The report was commissioned by the WA Department of Health at the request of the State Government and was prepared by independent expert Winthrop Professor D'Arcy Holman, Professor of Public Health at the University of Western Australia.

Adelaide: Government of South Australia

Drug and Alcohol Services SA has produced a draft for public consultation of their new tobacco control strategy. South Australian tobacco control work is guided by several overarching documents that include obligations and strategies for further regulation of smoking in public areas and reducing the harms of second-hand smoke. The primary target within the South Australian tobacco control strategy 2011-2016 is to reduce the percentage of young cigarette smokers by 5.4% from 21.3% in 2009 to 15.9% in 2016. This extends South Australia's Strategic Plan Target 2.1 by two years and requires the same reduction of at least 1% per year starting from 2009.
