This report documents the history of Indigenous eye health policy-making in Australia from the 1980’s National trachoma and eye health program to the present time with the aim of providing evidence to assist the Australian Government and the Council of Australian Governments in the system reform of Indigenous eye health. By undertaking a review of literature in the area of Indigenous eye health, and interviewing key stakeholders the report:

  • describes the development of Indigenous eye health programs and policy
  • recognises the key barriers and catalysts to the development of effective programs and policy
  • identifies strategies to assist in the future system reform of Indigenous eye health.
