The Evidence of Effective Interventions to improve the Social and Environmental Factors Impacting on Health: Informing the development of Indigenous Community Agreements resource has been developed to identify approaches and strategies from Australia and internationally which are known to produce the best outcomes in social and environmental health. It seeks to maximise the benefit of a whole of government approach to addressing health issues and to identify where investments outside the health sector are known to impact on health outcomes.

It provides evidence-based models of early intervention and prevention to assist Department of Health solution brokers (who work in Indigenous Coordination Centres) in developing Regional Partnership Agreements (RPAs) and Shared Responsibility Agreements (SRAs) in a coordinated and collaborative response across a number of agencies.
