Koolin Balit is the Victorian Government’s strategic directions for Aboriginal health for 2012 to 2022. This statewide action plan covers the period from 2013 to 2015, working towards making a significant and measurable impact on improving the length and quality of the lives of Aboriginal Victorians, as outlined in Koolin Balit.

This action plan outlines the detail of what the Victorian Department of Health and other relevant departments such as the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development (DEECD), in partnership with organisations such as Victorian Aboriginal Community Controlled Health
Organisation (VACCHO), will do in the period up to the end of 2015, and what we expect to change as a result of this action.

This action plan covers all the aims and strategies identified in Koolin Balit. The key priorities and enablers of Koolin Balit will also form the basis of action plans to be prepared in each Department of Health region. Koolin Balit and this action plan are focused on health outcomes for Aboriginal Victorians and the Department of Health’s areas of responsibility in influencing these outcomes. In order to achieve an integrated approach informed by a social determinants model of health we
recognise the need for strong partnerships and coordination with community organisations and other government departments. Actions from other departments are referenced in this action plan.
