Be active Australia: a framework for health sector action for physical activity 2005-2010.

Melbourne: National Public Health Partnership

The draft Be Active Australia - a National Physical Activity for Health Action Plan (now renamed Active Australia: A Health Sector Framework for Action 2005 -2010) was released in April 2004 for consultation. Consultations took place in each jurisdiction and 70 submissions, representing over 250 organisations, were received.

The Strategic Inter-Governmental forum on Physical Activity and Health (SIGPAH) sought comment from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples across Australia through a parallel consultation process undertaken by Innovative Leadership Australia.

On 9 June 2004, a national consensus workshop on the draft plan was held to review the issues raised by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisations and individuals during the national consultations, as well as to allow participants to make recommendations. Outcomes were presented on 10 June 2004 to the whole-of -population workshop and participants focussed on reaching an agreement on the Plan and implementation issues. SIGPAH met on 11 June 2004 to discuss incorporation of the consultation findings into a final draft and is currently preparing the Plan for National Public Health Partnership (NPHP) Member endorsement to refer to the Australian Health Ministers' Advisory Council and Health Ministers.
