Cultural Respect Framework 2016-2026 For Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health

This framework is a renewal of the Cultural Respect Framework for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health 2004-2009. It commits the Commonwealth Government and all states and territories to embedding cultural respect principles into their health systems; from developing policy and legislation, to how organisations are run, through to the planning and delivery of services. It will guide and underpin the delivery of quality, culturally safe, responsive health care to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, and contribute to progress made towards achieving the Closing the Gap targets agreed by the Council of Australian Governments (COAG).
