This section provides details of some general policies and strategies specific to individual state and territories. These policies and strategies will be relevant to Indigenous people as a part of the total population of the state or territory, and may include specific reference to Indigenous people.
It is possible that not all general policies and strategies of relevance to Indigenous people are included here, however, because the HealthInfoNet's searches focus on Indigenous-specific policies and strategies.

Department of Health and Families (2010)

Central Australian regional plan 2010-2012.

Darwin: Department of Health and Families, Northern Territory

The central Australia region covers 830,000 square kilometres; with a population of over 46,000 people, 44% identify as Indigenous Australians. Over 32,000 people live in Alice Springs, Tennant Creek and Yulara. The remainder of the population live in 45 remote communities and outstations. The regional plan has six action areas:

  • Promoting and protecting good health and wellbeing and preventing injury.
  • Healthy children and young people in safe and strong communities.
  • Targeting smoking, alcohol and substance abuse.
  • Connecting care.
  • Safety, quality and accountability.
  • Attract, develop and retain a workforce for the future.

Central Australia is unique in the need for flexible service delivery cross-borders, providing emergency care to more than 4,000 people living outside of the NT, including those people residing in South Australia, Queensland and Western Australia.
