Summary
"Without delivering on its commitments to health equality planning and a supporting partnership, we believe Australian governments' efforts to close the gap have hit a critical juncture. Current efforts will result in some progress. However if these efforts are not coordinated, the 'value added' through the wisdom of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and their representatives will be lost. The very people who the national effort is designed to help will be disempowered, wastage and inefficiency may occur and results may not be able to be sustained. The rolling out of the National Health and Hospitals Network has magnified all these risks. Only through planning and partnership could these risks be transformed into opportunities. We repeat our call for the Australian Government to prioritise delivery of the following commitments in the Statement of Intent: To developing a comprehensive, long-term plan of action, that is targeted to need, evidence-based and capable of addressing the existing inequalities in health services, in order to achieve equality of health status and life expectancy between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and non-Indigenous Australians by 2030; To ensure the full participation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and their representative bodies in all aspects of addressing their health needs." -- Taken from conclusion
