Editions of Koori health counts are produced as part of the new Improving Care for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Patients (ICAP) program. The aim of these publications is to improve the availability of Aboriginal health information in Victoria. This edition includes information relating to: the Aboriginal population; Aboriginal admissions to hospital; and Aboriginal births and deaths. The collection of this information allows the government to monitor changes in the health of the Aboriginal community. It also provides a basis for decision making on Aboriginal health priority issues and programs; helps achieve adequate resources for health programs and health services for Aboriginal people; assists development of appropriate health promotion and health screening programs; and ensures that mainstream health care services are appropriate and accessible to the Aboriginal community.
