Equity of outcomes
Improve cancer outcomes in communities that continue to have poorer outcomes to help everyone achieve their best health. Focus on achieving equitable cancer outcomes for Aboriginal communities.
- Take an equity-first lens to decision making, investment and monitoring. This means prioritising and enabling community driven services for Aboriginal communities and other focus populations that have poorer cancer outcomes.
- Recognise the individual, social, cultural and environmental factors that are important to prevent cancers and create supportive environments for healthier decisions and behaviours.
- Empower and partner with Aboriginal communities and other focus populations through community-led organisations, such as Aboriginal Community Controlled Organisations, multicultural organisations and other community-led groups, to create supportive environments, and invest in initiatives and services that are culturally safe and responsive to meet community needs and preferences for service delivery.
- Ensure the workforce reflects the diversity and needs of the NSW population, and has the skills to deliver care that is culturally safe and responsive, particularly for Aboriginal people.
- Build a strong voice for Aboriginal communities and other focus populations at the system level through co-design, leadership roles and governance structures.
- Deliver effective, efficient and affordable treatments that improve cancer outcomes for all.
