NSW Aboriginal Health Plan 2013-2023

The NSW Government will overhaul the way Aboriginal health care is delivered through a 10-year plan to improve health services and outcomes for the state's Aboriginal people.

Minister for Healthy Lifestyles and Western New South Wales, Kevin Humphries, last week launched the NSW Aboriginal Health Plan 2013-2023, which outlines a vision, goal and strategic direction for the NSW health system to meet the challenge of closing the health gap between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people. "Through this plan we will reform the way Aboriginal health services are delivered to Aboriginal people and ensure services meet the needs of local communities," Mr Humphries said.

Minister for Health, Jillian Skinner, said the NSW Aboriginal Health Plan 2013-2023 will provide strategic direction to the NSW Ministry of Health as to how Aboriginal health should be organised, funded and delivered over the next 10 years.
