Darwin: Northern Territory Department of Health and Families

The Northern Territory chronic conditions prevention and management strategy implementation plan 2010-2020 focuses on the development of a framework for a 'system wide' approach to tackling chronic conditions in the Northern Territory (NT). The strategy has a ten year time frame and a particular focus on cardiovascular disease, rheumatic heart disease, type 2 diabetes, respiratory disease, kidney disease, cancer and mental illness. The plan, which will be reviewed and updated every three years, provides an outline of strategies and actions required in the NT. It lists key elements and key action areas which will be measured in order to determine if the strategy's aim and subsequent goals, to improve the health of all Territorians, are being met.

Statewide Service Strategy Division (2010)

Aboriginal health care plan 2010-2016.

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
