Implementation plan for the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Plan 2013–2023.

Canberra: Australian Government Department of Health

This publication reports on the implementation plan for the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health plan 2013-2023. The implementation plan focuses on the Australian Government's role in ensuring the health system is flexible to respond to identified needs, is able to support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to make healthy choices, and provides culturally safe access to quality early intervention and treatment services and integrated clinical services, and is free of racism.

It includes strategies such as:

  • investing in increased capability of Aboriginal community controlled health organisations to be able to meet identified needs
  • reducing racism and discrimination and improving the cultural safety of the mainstream health system, including primary health care
  • identifying, mapping and responding to need, recognising that geographical factors can play an important role in assessing the need of individual communities, and ensuring good quality care is delivered
  • ensuring evidence-based care is provided
  • ensuring accountability and leadership for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples' health
  • defining the core services that are required to flexibly respond to identified needs
  • increasing workforce capability
  • partnering with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and their representative bodies in all levels of planning, service delivery and evaluation.

Healthy weight for adults and older Australians: a national action agenda to address overweight and obesity in adults and older Australians, 2006-2010.

Canberra: Department of Health and Ageing

The main goals of The National Action Agenda to Address Overweight and Obesity in Adults and Older Australians are to prevent weight gain at the population level, achieve better management of early risk and to improve management of weight. This Agenda focuses on a four year timeframe for mobilising resources and initiating and implementing of actions - 2006 to 2010. The actions in this Agenda have been selected following the results of extensive national consultations and a literature review. They have been assessed against:

  • the potential population impact of the action, defined as the product of the effect;
  • the number of people affected; and
  • the level of certainty of achieving effects, given the available evidence.

Many of the actions proposed in this Agenda are consistent with, and overlap, actions described in other National and State frameworks, plans and strategies. This will reinforce the common goals and pathways for promoting good nutrition, physical activity, healthy weight and preventing chronic disease.
