The Aboriginal Governance and Accountability Framework is a new way of working for Aboriginal communities and the department, towards self-determination in the health and human services sector.

The framework provides a forum for building stronger relationships between Aboriginal communities and the department, and will involve Aboriginal communities in policy development and decision making, including resource allocation.

It supports the department’s commitment to self-determination and ensures Aboriginal voices drive decisions around the health, wellbeing and safety of Aboriginal Victorians through better partnership and joint decision-making between Aboriginal communities, government and agencies.

It also provides an opportunity for the transparent monitoring of accountability of outcomes for Aboriginal Victorians and informs governance, monitoring and accountability to Korin Korin Balit-Djak.
