Clearinghouse for evidence-based research on overcoming disadvantage for Indigenous Australians

The Clearinghouse provides access to a collection of quality information on what works to overcome Indigenous disadvantage. This will provide policy makers and program managers with an evidence base for achieving the Closing the Gap targets and related Indigenous reforms. Indigenous Australians will benefit through the delivery of policies and services which address Indigenous disadvantage more effectively.

The Council of Australian Governments (COAG) has agreed to six targets in the areas of health, education and employment for Closing the Gap on Indigenous disadvantage.

Welcome to the website for the Indigenous Chronic Disease Package – an important part of the Australian Government’s response to closing the gap in Indigenous health outcomes.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people experience a burden of disease two-and-a-half times that of other Australians. A large part of the burden of disease is due to chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, cancer, chronic respiratory disease and chronic kidney disease. This can be reduced by earlier identification, and management of risk factors and the disease itself.

The Indigenous Chronic Disease Package aims to achieve this reduction by providing support to the health sector and better access to health care by Indigenous Australians.

While great work is being done by many dedicated people around Australia, more is needed to reduce the burden of chronic disease on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
