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
