Working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples

Cross Cutting Areas

In recognising the high level of diversity across the First Nations population, the Commonwealth affirms its effort to directly meet the needs of all First Nations peoples through implementation of the National Agreement. With a strong focus on disability, gender and sexuality, ageing populations, and the new cross-cutting outcome area of remote Australia, this Implementation Plan addresses the intersecting layers of individual and structural considerations required to mitigate the compounding effects that often further exacerbate the acute social, economic, wellbeing and health inequalities across all socio-economic indicators for First Nations peoples with diverse needs.

While specific priority actions that link directly with these cross-cutting outcome areas are woven through the Priority Reforms and socio-economic chapters, an additional section of the plan highlights strategies and actions that lay across all of the outcomes and targets.
