The Federal Government has released the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Plan in partnership with state and territory governments and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health leaders. The national policy framework is designed to improve health and wellbeing outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples over the next ten years.
"The Health Plan is the first national health document to address and embed the health targets and Priority Reforms of the National Agreement on Closing the Gap," said Federal Minister for Health, Greg Hunt.
The plan's vision is to see that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples ‘enjoy long, healthy lives centred in culture, with access to services that are prevention-focused, culturally safe and responsive, equitable and free of racism'.
The Remote Area Health Corps (RAHC) is proud to be a part of efforts to close the gap in healthcare inequalities by supporting remote access to healthcare services.
