The need to develop effective processes to align programs and policy with community needs and values is increasingly being seen as critical to the practical and political success of government initiatives. The aim of this project was to develop a theoretical framework for analysis of agreements and planning processes in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health, particularly in relation to how they operate as mechanisms to support community participation in higher level policy development.
