partnerships and shared responsibility

  • localised decision-making

  • community capacity building

  • coordination of service delivery

  • transparency and accountability.

    In 2002, key state and territory representatives working in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health promotion and population health met in Sydney and developed the Principles for better practice in Aboriginal health promotion. These are shown below.

    Principles for better practice in Aboriginal health promotion

    1. Aboriginal health promotion should acknowledge Aboriginal cultural influences and the historical, social and cultural context of communities.

    2. Aboriginal health promotion practice should be based on available evidence.

    3. Effective Aboriginal health promotion practice means building the capacities of the community, government, service systems, organisations and the workforce, ensuring equitable resource allocation (flexible purchaser provider arrangements), cultural security and respect in the workplace.

    4. Aboriginal health promotion should ensure ongoing community involvement and consultation.

    5. The practical application of Aboriginal self-determination principles is fundamental in all Aboriginal health promotion planning.

    6. Aboriginal health promotion adheres to the holistic definition of health and acknowledges that primary health care in Aboriginal communities incorporates Aboriginal health promotion.

    7. The establishment of effective partnerships is required to address many of the determinants of health.

    8. Aboriginal health promotion programs should aim to be sustainable and transferable.

    9. Aboriginal health promotion should demonstrate transparency of operations and accountability.

    About chronic diseases and lifestyle factors

    The following pages will provide you with some background information on the main chronic diseases and main lifestyle factors that will be the focus of your work. The three main chronic diseases are diabetes, cardiovascular disease and kidney disease; all are largely preventable.

    Unhealthy eating, lack of physical activity, smoking and drinking alcohol (known collectively as ‘lifestyle factors’) are some of the risk factors that can be changed to reduce the risk of chronic diseases and reduce their effect among people who have already been diagnosed with them.
