Just released: 2013 Review of Indigenous offender health now available

Date posted: 3 July 2013

Staff at the Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet and the Kirby Institute have updated the Review of Indigenous offender health for 2013.

Drawing upon new population data and a number of recent studies significant to the field, this latest publication reviews the research and builds upon the 2011 peer reviewed version to provide comprehensive information on Indigenous offender health.

Key areas covered include:

Comparison data on number and rates of imprisonment for 2009 and 2012 are provided showing changes across states. Separate sections are devoted to women and juvenile offenders.

The review indicates potential future directions for policy at a national level and recommends the inclusion of offender health as part of current strategies to achieving Indigenous health equality.

HealthInfoNet provides access to quality, up-to date knowledge and information about Indigenous health. We aim to improve the health of Indigenous people by providing the evidence base for policy and practice.

The Review of Indigenous offender health is now available for viewing and for download from the HealthInfoNet website.
