A Reciprocal Relationship: Accountability for Public Value in the Aboriginal Community Sector
The Aboriginal community controlled health sector is a major provider of primary and preventative health care services to Aboriginal people outside Australia’s major cities and towns. It is important that it functions well. There are many aspects to good service delivery. This paper contributes to one of them - good management - both in the community health services themselves and in the public sector agencies that fund them. Clearly, for every dollar spent in the health sector, efficiency in how it is distributed will pay off in improved outcomes. This is true from the highest and broadest policy-setting forums all the way down the supply chain to the interaction between health workers and clients at the community level.
