Indigenous Chronic Disease Package in 2010-11 - Annual Progress Report
This publication reports on progress in implementing the Indigenous Chronic Disease Package (ICDP) in the 2010-11 financial year. It demonstrates how the Australian Government’s commitment to tackling chronic disease to help close the gap in health outcomes between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians is being achieved.
This is the second report by the Australian Government on its progress in implementing the ICDP. It covers the period from 1 July 2010 to 30 June 2011 and reports against the benchmarks and deliverables in the Australian Government’s Implementation Plan, as required by the National Partnership Agreement.
The report also includes case studies from some of the organisations who are involved in the implementation of the Package.
