The plan outlines local actions (including monitoring and evaluation strategies) aimed at achieving measurable change in the health and family wellbeing of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people living in the ACT and surrounding region. It includes a detailed description of strategies and desired outcomes.The plan's holistic and family-centred approach outlines five priority areas: building family resilience, maternal and child health, social health (including mental health and substance abuse), chronic and infectious disease prevention and management, and frail aged and people with disabilities.
