The National Strategic Framework for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health (NSFATSIH) commits governments to monitoring and implementation within their own jurisdictions, as well as working together at the national level and across government on joint initiatives between health and other portfolios to address specific health problems and ensure Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people enjoy a healthy life equal to the general population.

This is the third report to Ministers under the new arrangements in accordance with the NSFATSIH. Information contained in this report reflects performance against the Australian Government implementation plan, which commits to action complementary to core business. This report builds on and replaces previous annual reporting arrangements under the Agreements on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health (Framework Agreements) and includes action that contributes to other relevant endorsed national initiatives.
