Cultural Respect Framework 2016-2026 for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health
Canberra: Australian Health Ministers’ Advisory Council

This framework is a renewal of the Cultural respect framework for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health 2004-2009.

The framework has six domains and subsequent focus areas:

  • whole-of-organisation approach and commitment
  • communication
  • workforce development and training
  • consumer participation and engagement
  • stakeholder partnerships and collaboration
  • data, planning, research and evaluation.

This framework was developed for the Australian Health Ministers & Advisory Council by the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Standing Committee and should be used in the government health sector, health departments and hospital and primary health care settings to guide strategies to improve culturally respectful services.
