My Life My Lead – opportunities for strengthening approaches to the social determinants and cultural determinants of Indigenous health: report on the national consultations
Canberra: Australian Government Department of Health

This report summaries the learnings from the My Life My Lead consultations, held as part of the implementation plan for the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health plan 2013-2033. It is key to the ongoing commitment under the implementation plan to consider the social determinants and cultural determinants of Indigenous health. The report will help to guide the ongoing development, implementation and delivery of future policy and programs, and support the ongoing commitment from the Australian Government to closing the gap. It will also inform the development of the next iteration of the implementation plan due for release in 2018.

The My Life My Lead consultation report is an account of what was heard from participants and contributors about the factors impacting on health, and is further informed by literature and research on the identified priority areas. These priority areas encompass a range of sectors and areas, including, but not limited to, health, education, housing, employment and justice. The report also notes where there is need for further work and exploration.
