  • Summary Information:
    Meeting Challenges, Making Choices (MCMC) is the Queensland State Government's policy response to the Fitzgerald Cape York Justice Study which was published in 2001. It involves the Queensland Government and Indigenous communities working together to tackle a range of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander issues.
    Detailed Information:
    The MCMC project was released in April 2002 with the aim of improving the quality of life in Queensland's Indigenous communities via a range of reforms. These reforms focus on eight priority areas as determined in consultation with Queensland's Indigenous communities. These are: 1. Alcohol, substance abuse and rehabilitation; 2. Children, youth and families; 3. Crime and justice; 4. Governance; 4. Economic development; 6. Health; 7. Education and training; and 8. Land and sustainable natural resource management. The overall aim of the strategy is to facilitate community capacity and develop locally-based solutions with specific regard to improving the health and well-being of those living in Indigenous communities.
