The National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Equality Council (NATSIHEC) was decommissioned in July 2014.
NATSIHEC was established by the Prime Minister, Hon Kevin Rudd in March 2008, and provided national leadership in responding to the Australian Government's commitment to Closing the gap on a range of health-related areas where Indigenous Australians experience disadvantage.
NATSIHEC advised the Minister for Health on the achievement of equitable and sustainable health outcomes for Indigenous Australians. This included assisting in the development of monitoring of progress towards a set of health-related goals and targets to support the Australian Government's commitments on life expectancy and child mortality.
