The action areas of the Strategy set out how the main goals of the Strategy will be achieved in terms of areas of need, intervention and expected outcomes. The order of action areas varies from that of the LiFE Framework to reflect the logic of engagement of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and the priority that needs to be given to supporting community leadership and community action in suicide prevention. It does not suggest that one action area is more important than the other; rather, each action area makes an important contribution to the successful implementation of strategies under all other action areas. The approach taken by the Strategy corresponds to that of Marmot’s “proportionate universalism”: activities are, where possible, implemented for the widest possible benefit for the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander population, but with proportionate additional effort for those at greater risk or disadvantage.
