National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Plan 2013-2023.

Canberra: Australian Department of Health and Ageing

This plan provides a long-term, evidence-based policy framework as part of the Council of Australian Governments' approach to Closing the gap in Indigenous disadvantage. The Australian Government worked in partnership with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community groups, and peak bodies to produce the plan.

The plan builds on the United nations declaration on the rights of Indigenous peoples, with a focus on:

  • policies and programs to improve Indigenous health
  • social and emotional wellbeing
  • resilience
  • promoting healthy behaviours
  • the centrality of culture for health and wellbeing
  • the right of people to be safe and empowered.

The plan at a glance includes:

  • the vision
  • principles
  • priorities
  • implementation.
