South Australian Aboriginal Heart & Stroke Plan
Aboriginal people in South Australia experience significant differentials in cardiovascular disease burden and mortality compared to their non-Indigenous counterparts. As such, a focused effort on reducing disparities in cardiovascular disease and care can have a significant impact on life expectancy differentials.
The SA Aboriginal Heart and Stroke Plan 2017-2021
The SA Aboriginal Heart and Stroke Plan 2017-2021 was developed by the Wardliparingga Aboriginal Research Unit, SAHMRI, for SA Health in collaboration with many key stakeholders. We would particularly like to acknowledge the contributions from:
- members of the Aboriginal community including the members of the Community Reference Groups;
- the Steering Committee; and
- the many services providers and content experts who inputted into the Plan.
The development of the Plan reflects South Australia's response to the Australian Health Ministers Advisory Council project "Better Cardiac Care for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples".
The purpose of the Plan is to guide the delivery of evidence-based services for the prevention and management of those at risk of, and with, heart disease and stroke in South Australia.
