Abstract adapted from AMA

This report card presents the Australian Medical Association (AMA) Taskforce on Indigenous health's audit of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health services. The report card considers the progress that has been made by Australian governments in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health, and the challenges that still exist, as measured against the key recommendations the AMA has made in five priority areas over the last 10 years, including:

  • provision of primary health care appropriate to need
  • strong workforce for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health
  • high quality health services for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people
  • health risk factors and social determinants
  • governance and monitoring.

The report lists the recommendations together with major government measures, programs and initiatives that have been adopted, the challenges that still exist and the work that still needs to be done.
