This report provides an estimate of expenditure for health goods and services for Indigenous people in 2010-11. It is part of the Expenditure on health for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples series, and builds on the previous six reports released by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare.
This report found that health expenditure for Indigenous people accounted for 3.7% of all Australia's recurrent health expenditure. Publicly funded health services, including public hospitals and community health services, were the highest areas of Indigenous health expenditure; expenditure on pharmaceutical and dental services were generally lower for Indigenous people than for non-Indigenous people. This report also includes details on funding sources and health expenditure trends over time.
