Making Tracks towards health equity with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples

Queensland Health and the Queensland Aboriginal and Islander Health Council (QAIHC) have released a joint discussion paper about current and future reforms to achieve health equity with First Nations peoples, address the legacy of institutional racism and close the life expectancy gap by 2031.

The discussion paper—Making Tracks towards health equity with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples: working together to achieve life expectancy parity by 2031—outlines the new agenda being driven across the health system that aims to:

  • introduce broader changes and improvements within and across the health system, and
  • influence wider changes and improvements to the economic and social conditions in with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples live their lives.

Nine weeks of regional consultations between March to May 2021 will involve Queensland Health and QAIHC discussing the health equity agenda and seeking other suggestions to drive the agenda forward and improve the social determinants of health.

Written responses to the discussion paper can be submitted by 30 April 2021.

Please visit the Queensland Health website to download the discussion paper and find out about the regional consultations being held across the State.
