Framework agreements on the health of Aborigines and Torres Strait Islander, which are intergovernmental agreements that form the basis for joint planning and development of services. The nature and scope of choices in shared responsibility agreements must be defined to ensure that they are truly reciprocal. There are a number of key issues that need to be addressed if we are looking at SRS for the Aboriginal health strategy. First, it seems unlikely that they will work when used as a vehicle for a radical program for the elimination of Aboriginal self-determination. In the second context, critical issues should be addressed between the relationship between these agreements and Aboriginal health planning. Behind the dubious motives and the brilliant records, there is little political substance. These agreements are inherently ad hoc, there is no adequate evidence-based research and other essential elements to meet the needs. Over the past decade, the government has not adopted a controversial approach to Australian public policy, particularly in the context of debates on social reform. Although the idea has a much longer history and was born at the origin of debates in the 18th and 19th centuries about the social contract that binds citizens and the state, it was mobilized in this context by what was constructed as a “problem of dependence on well-being”. [22.23] Some commentators argue that dependence on social benefits is not explicitly defined in government policy, giving ambiguous or contradictory interpretations.  Nevertheless, it can be concluded that dependence on social benefits arises when individuals receiving income assistance depend on governments, not because they do not have the capacity to exercise their autonomy, but rather the will.
 In 1999, in a speech to the Australia Unlimited Roundtable, Prime Minister Howard indicated that the Mulan Agreement was first proclaimed in December 2004. But in April 2005, the press reported that the prevalence of trachoma in Mulan had dropped to zero, down from a peak of 70% in 2004. [46.47] In this region, however, trapeze data is collected each year (approximately in September) at the same time. This is to minimize the impact of seasonal variations on prevalence data. Prevalence data vary each year based on a number of factors, including seasonal variations (which stagnate more often in the event of dusty drought) and population mobility (in a small community, lack of family can have a significant impact on rates) (see Table 1). The high prevalence of trachoma in 2003 (70 per cent) was probably the result of an unusually dry year, and this was probably the result of the increase in prevalence (to 58 per cent) that took place in 2005 after the announcement of the Mulan Agreement.
