The Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW) is a major national agency set up by the Australian Government under the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare Act. The AIHW provides reliable, regular and relevant information and statistics on Australia's health and welfare. Their aim is to improve the health and wellbeing of Australians through better health and welfare information and statistics.
