Aboriginal Health and Wellbeing Policy

Applicable to: Health Service Providers

Description: The Aboriginal Health and Wellbeing Policy specifies the mandatory policy requirements that all Health Service Providers (HSPs) must comply with to strengthen and embed the approach to improve the health and wellbeing of Aboriginal people living in Western Australia (WA). The Department of Health has developed the Implementation Guide for the WA Aboriginal Health and Wellbeing Framework 2015-2030 (the Implementation Guide) to inform the application and use of the WA Aboriginal Health and Wellbeing Framework 2015-2030 (the Framework) by HSPs. The Implementation Guide presents a how-to manual for taking meaningful and measureable actions towards improvements in Aboriginal health and wellbeing outcomes across WA. The purpose of the Aboriginal Health and Wellbeing Policy is to ensure a consistent approach across HSPs to address the Framework's strategic directions and work towards the performance measures and targets that relate to Aboriginal people, as detailed in the Health Service Performance Report.
