Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women experience the poorest health outcomes of any group of women in Australian society, and have a right to determine what their health system will look like. This strategy has been developed through extensive consultation with over 400 ATSI women during 2009-2010. It is intended to supplement other national and state/territory identified priorities and needs. Recommendations are grouped into four action areas: supportive environments; health service access and equity; women in the health workforce; and appointment of a national policy officer to implement the strategy.
