Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health report card 2012 - 2013: the healthy early years - getting the right start in life.

Canberra: Australian Medical Association

The Australian Medical Association's (AMA) Indigenous health report card for 2012-13 focuses on the health and wellbeing of Indigenous children. It outlines the current research and evidence on the factors in the early life of Indigenous children may determine health outcomes later in life. It also provides evidence for policies, programs and measures that work to protect them against adverse social and physical conditions in early life. On the basis of that evidence, the 2012-13 report card makes a range of recommendations to governments to improve health and wellbeing in the early years, in the following areas:

  • development of a comprehensive plan for maternal and child services
  • support for families at risk
  • measures to keep children at school
  • strengthening community capacity
  • improving the living environment
  • ensuring better data, research and evaluation.
