2009 AMA Indigenous report card focuses on Indigenous male health

Date posted: 10 November 2009

The eighth Australian Medical Association (AMA) Indigenous Health Report Card was launched in Darwin today by the Minister for Indigenous Health, Warren Snowdon, and AMA President, Dr Andrew Pesce. The title of this year's Report Card is: The Health of Indigenous Males: Building Capacity, Securing the Future.

Dr Pesce said the Report Card highlights the tragic state of health for Indigenous males in Australia today, and proposes solutions that will ensure longer and better quality lives.

The AMA Indigenous Health Report Card 2009 collates the facts of the health of Indigenous males, including life expectancy, infant death, hospitalisation rates, mental health status, victims of violence and representation in the justice system.

The Report Card also highlights some success stories in the document Good news and best practice 2009.
