Development of a National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Plan

Overview

 

The National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Plan will support the Australian Government's long standing commitment to work with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to support improvements in health outcomes and other determinants of health.

The Australian Government will be consulting with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander individuals, communities and groups, health service providers, education providers, employment organisations and State, Territory and Local Governments, to make sure the Health Plan meets the varied needs of all Indigenous Australians.

We welcome peoples' thoughts on what is most important for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health and what needs to be done.
