2017 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health performance framework report released

Date posted: 30 May 2017

The Minister for Indigenous Health, the Hon Ken Wyatt AM, MP, has launched the 2017 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health performance framework report.

Beginning in 2006, and now in its sixth edition, the Health performance framework monitors progress in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health outcomes, health system performance and the broader determinants of health.

The Health performance framework has been developed under the auspices of the Australian Health Ministers’ Advisory Council (AHMAC) and is the authoritative evidence-base for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health.

Minister Wyatt said the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health performance framework 2017 report shows some positive results in health outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people but the harsh reality is that there is still a long way to go. 'While the government continues to invest substantially and works closely with communities in a wide range of Indigenous health programs and interventions that aim to improve Indigenous health and wellbeing, considerable challenges remain,' he said. 'Addressing these challenges requires a whole of health system response and a concerted effort from all levels of government.'

The supplementary detailed statistical analysis (dynamic data displays with interactive charts and online tables), is available on the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare website.
