Abstract

This literature review investigated present wellbeing frameworks at a global and local level that are relevant to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people living in remote Australia. Current government frameworks gather statistical data for policy analysis and program development. Progressively more frameworks are incorporating holistic measures of health, for example, cultural health, governance, and the impacts of colonisation.

The review highlights the need to establish a wellbeing framework that considers the strengths and resilience of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people together with their worldviews, perspectives, and values. Cultural identity is vital combined with control, achievement, and inclusion at a wider level of society. Examples of successful projects are included in the review with recommendations for the development of a wellbeing framework.
