Adelaide: Department of Health, South Australia
The Aboriginal health care plan 2010-2016 has been developed by SA Health as part of a significant health reform led by the South Australian Government. It aims to:
- outline ways to reduce ill health among South Australian Aboriginal people
- promote cultural responsiveness in the health system
- promote Aboriginal community health and wellbeing
Aiming for an achievement of these overarching goals, the plan:
- describes the demographic and major health issues for Aboriginal South Australians and variations across the state
- outlines a model comprising six key areas: supporting good health; stronger primary health care; better care for those with high needs; an integrated and collaborative approach to the planning and delivery of services and programs, a focus on priorities; enablers for action
- identifies six priorities for action based on the burden of disease and population profile
- sets a framework for the regional Aboriginal health improvement plans
- identifies key next steps and governance arrangements
