Coag National Indigenous Reform Agreement Enacted

[31983] called on the federal government to maintain and establish national representation to facilitate meaningful engagement and improve the health and justice outcomes of Torres Strait Aborigines and Islanders. National Partnership Agreements (NPAs) are agreements between the Commonwealth of Australia and the States and Territories. They ensure that all levels of government engage in the same framework of results, progress and policy direction. NPAs build on current initiatives, repair deficits and can unlock additional funds. Six agreements were initially included in the “Closing the Gap” policy: COAG 2012. National Indigenous Reform Agreement. Canberra: COAG. On July 24, 2017, www.federalfinancialrelations.gov.au/content/npa/health/ _archive/indigenous-reform/agreement_sept_12.pdf was established in 2011 the National Health Leadership Forum (NHLF) [30931]. The NHLF is made up of Aboriginal and Torres Island Islanders of high-level health and the Gap Control Committee. It is the national representation of Aboriginal organizations and organizations of the Torres Strait Islanders that advises and works with the Australian government to improve the health outcomes of Aboriginal people and Torres Strait Islander. In March 2012, the National Congress of Australia`s First Peoples proposed adding a new justice objective to the existing objectives to fill this gap, which are monitored by Australian governments [24792]. This goal was to combat the over-representation of Strait Torres Aborigines and Islanders in the criminal justice system. In November 2008, COAG approved the National Indigenous Reform Agreement (NIRA).

This agreement provides a comprehensive overview of the steps taken to achieve the objectives to address this gap, including objectives, results, results, performance criteria and benchmarks in the various national partnership agreements. COAG 2015 Release of the December 2015 COAG meeting. July 24, 2017 www.coag.gov.au/sites/default/files/communique/ COAG_Communique_20151211.pdf The National Congress of The First Comings of Australia is the national representative voice of the Aborigines and TorresRait St Islander. The Congress was developed through consultations and submissions to a steering committee, with the support of the Australian Human Rights Commission. The first Board of Directors of the National Congress of Australia`s First Peoples was appointed in April 2010. The Heads of State and Government reaffirmed that improving the lives of Indigenous Australians is a priority on the strategic agenda for the future of COAG and agreed that the “close the gap” framework has played an important role in promoting unprecedented national efforts to improve aboriginal outcomes. As the current framework approaches its 10th anniversary and some goals are coming to an end in 2018, heads of state and government have pledged to work with indigenous leaders, organizations and communities to re-issue the programme, again focusing on cooperative efforts, evaluations and implementation of what works in different legal systems. [35451] Prime Minister Kevin Rudd announced the creation of the National Indigenous Health Equality Council (NIHEC) at the 2008 National Indigenous Health Equality Summit. NIHEC provides national leadership in filling the health gap for Aborigines and Torres Strait Islander, bringing together representatives of the Australian governments and the Aborigines and Torres StRaiter and the mainstream health sector.
