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:

National strategic framework for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health: framework for action by governments.

Canberra: National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Council

The National strategic framework builds on the National Aboriginal health strategy (1989) (view Framework and Strategy documents). It draws together nationally agreed strategies to address specific health problems, state and territory policies and plans and the national collaborative policy and planning frameworks within which Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health programs are managed.

The report details nine principles on which the National Strategic Framework is based and describes three central desired outcomes:

  • towards a more effective and responsive health system
  • influencing the health impacts of the non-health sector
  • providing the infrastructure to improve health status.

The conclusion describes the implementation and evaluation plans and identifies the responsible organisations.
