Report - Engaging First Peoples: A Review of Government Engagement Methods for Developing Health Policy

This discussion paper from the Lowitja Institute addresses what effective engagement means and how it works in policy development and implementation.

This is the second discussion paper for the Lowitja Institute on government engagement with First Peoples in Australia provides a review and policy analysis of national, State and regionally constructed engagement strategies. It complements a recent review of the conditions required if engagement between government and First Peoples is to be effective. The learnings from both reviews will have particular relevance for practitioners concerned with the difficulties of contributing to the achievement of equity in health and wellbeing for First Peoples in increasingly complex policy and community contexts.
