Healthy for life: results for July 2007-June 2011.

Canberra: Australian Institute of Health and Welfare

This report presents data from services receiving Healthy for life (HfL) funding, including the number of clients and health outcomes measured by 10 essential indicators (EIs) covering maternal and child health and chronic disease care:

  • timing of first antenatal visit
  • average birthweight
  • low and high birthweight babies
  • risk factors identified during pregnancy
  • immunisation rates
  • conduct of adult health checks
  • chronic disease management plans, GP management plans and team care arrangements
  • glycosylated haemoglobin (HbA1c) blood tests for clients with type 2 diabetes (whether done in the last 6 months, and the results)
  • blood pressure tests for clients with type 2 diabetes (whether done in the last 6 months, and the results)
  • blood pressure tests for clients with coronary heart disease (whether done in the last 6 months, and the results)

It is the first publicly released report published since data collection and reporting for the Healthy for life program began in 2007. Healthy for life (HfL) program was established with a set of key objectives to improve the health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. The report provides comparisons over time, making it easy to see how the program has developed and its major achievements.

About 100 health services were funded as part of the program, but not all were required to provide data. Those providing data for the report represent 85% of all services funded in the 2010-11 reporting period. The services are widely distributed in every state and territory, from major cities to very remote areas.

The HfL aligns with the principles and priorities of the National Strategic Framework for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health (NSF), 2003- 2013 and the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) Closing the gap initiative, and is the first Office for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health (OATSIH) funded program with a strong focus on continuous quality improvement (CQI) to collect and report on health outcome data that goes beyond service activity reporting.
