Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health performance framework report 2008.

Canberra: Department of Health and Ageing

This is a report about progress for the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Performance Framework established to measure the impact of the National Strategic Framework for Aboriginal and Torres Strait islander Health. The report highlights improvements in vital aspects of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health while acknowledging areas which remain unchanged and others which have worsened since the 2006 report.

The report covers areas including health determinants and behaviours, access to health care, child and maternal services, social and emotional wellbeing and management of chronic illnesses. Finally, the report considers the levels of resource expenditure required to strengthen the system of comprehensive primary health care for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

Standing Committee on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health, Statistical Information Management Committee (2006)

National summary of the 2003 and 2004 jurisdictional reports against the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health performance indicators.

Canberra: Australian Institute of Health and Welfare

This report is the second national summary of 56 health performance indicators for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. The indicators have been developed to monitor whether the health of Indigenous people is improving, and to highlight problem areas and priorities. Although information is given for separate states and territories, the relatively poor quality of current Indigenous health data makes comprehensive comparisons impossible.
