Overview of Australian Indigenous health status, 2013.

Perth, WA: Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet

This report provides recent information on:

  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander populations
  • the context of Indigenous health
  • various measures of population health status
  • selected health conditions
  • health risk and protective factors.

This Overview draws on statistics and other published and unpublished materials to provide up-to-date, detailed information about the health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in 2013. It highlights a number of improvements in certain aspects of Indigenous health, but underlines that ongoing work is needed to 'close the gap' in health status between Indigenous and other Australians.

Australia’s health 2014: the 14th biennial health report of the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare.

Canberra: Australian Institute of Health and Welfare

Australia's health 2014 was released by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare as the fourtenth edition of its biennial national health report. The report shows that Australia is one of the healthiest nations in the world, with most Australians generally have good health and access to a range of good health care services, but Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples continue to have much poorer health than the general population.

Health information about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples is included in various sections of the report but particularly in chapter 7 which compiles information about demographic profiles, health status, disability rates and service use. The section highlights that Indigenous Australians are continuing to die at much younger ages than non-Indigenous Australians. Indigenous Australians also continue to have a greater disease burden, higher rates of disability and a lower quality of life than other Australians. The section concludes with information on behaviours and health risk factors that shape the health status of Indigenous peoples such as tobacco use, alcohol misuse and illicit drug use.

The West Australian Indigenous storybook : celebrating and sharing good news stories: the Kimberley edition.

Perth, WA: Public Health Advocacy Institute of WA

This is the fifth edition of the West Australian Indigenous storybook, showcasing the achievements of Indigenous communities and people across Western Australia (WA). These stories are from the Kimberley region of WA. This edition features stories that describe eco-tourism and cultural tours, media facilities, environmental stewardship, healthy communities and social programs. The storybook aims to:

  • Provide skills to Indigenous professionals across WA through the facilitation of writing workshops and by providing the opportunity to match Indigenous storytellers with local mentors who can provide further guidance in writing individual stories.
  • Embrace a holistic view of health. Stories are drawn from the health sector but also from many sectors outside of health - such as education, employment, housing, environment, transport, animal management, sport and recreation, alcohol and drugs and many others.
  • Showcase community based programs that could be replicated in other communities to improve or influence the many social determinants of health. Many stories highlight that local solutions are often the most effective.

The book features 14 stories, all of which focus on individuals or programs. They outline how these people and projects are making a difference to the quality of life and wellbeing of people in Indigenous communities.

Indigenous Australians and health: the wombat in the room.

Melbourne: Oxford University Press

Indigenous Australians and health: the wombat in the room seeks to raise awareness of the culturally appropriate way for working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians in urban and remote areas. The book outlines the central components that influence good health for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. It aims to provide an understanding of health from the Indigenous perspective while also examining the historical connections of health and the impact of colonisation; past and present.

The book features:

  • fact boxes that help to dismiss any predetermined notions
  • case examples, placement experiences, and personal stories that show actual experiences from the field
  • insights into how health practitioners can influence healthier outcomes
  • questions to encourage students to reflect on their learning.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health services report, 2010-11: OATSIH services reporting - key results.

Canberra: Australian Institute of Health and Welfare

This report presents the main findings from the Office for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health (OATSIH) Services Reporting data collection. Data were collected by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW) from primary health-care services, substance use services and Bringing Them Home and Link Up counselling services that received funding through OATSIH in 2010-11. The health services included those provided through Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal community controlled health organisations.

The information covered the number of clients seen, episodes of care and client contacts. This information helps to inform Indigenous health policy, and program development and implementation. Primary health care services provided 2.5 million episodes of care to about 428,000 Indigenous clients; substance use services provided treatment and assistance to about 28,600 clients and Bringing Them Home and Link Up counselling services were accessed by about 11,800 clients.

Closing the Gap Clearinghouse (2012)

Healthy lifestyle programs for physical activity and nutrition.

Canberra: Closing the Gap Clearinghouse

This report assesses the evidence regarding the effectiveness of physical activity and nutrition intervention programs in reducing the incidence of chronic diseases in Indigenous communities. The report also describes the burden of lifestyle-related chronic diseases (diabetes, cardiovascular disease and chronic kidney disease) affecting Indigenous Australians and assesses strategies that have the potential to be affective.

The authors conclude from the evidence that healthy lifestyle programs can help to combat lifestyle-related chronic diseases. In particular, the programs that were found to be most effective were community-based projects that were initiated and managed by the communities in which they were run. Individual, family and group-based Indigenous healthy lifestyle projects were found to have positive effects in the short term (up to two years). It is not known whether these effects are sustained in the long term as few programs have both the resources and impetus to continue long term.

The storybook demonstrates how, in partnership with health professionals, Aboriginal people from the Riverland area in rural South Australia are taking an active part in managing their chronic conditions. The storybook tells how and why RACDSG was formed, and how the Riverland Community Health Service is involved with RACDSG. Also described are:

  • achievements and benefits of RACDSG to date
  • several stories and tips from individual members
  • some related activities in the region
  • how this work fits into a larger research project about chronic condition management strategies in Aboriginal communities.

Queensland Aboriginal and Islander Health Council

Queensland Aboriginal and Islander Health Council has developed these guidelines to assist and encourage staff, visitors and the wider community to make healthy choices easier choices by ensuring the nutritional quality of food and drinks supplied and promoted are consistent with the Australian Dietary Guidelines, Australian Guide to Healthy Eating and the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Guide to Healthy Eating.

These guidelines aim to assist staff in making appropriate food and drink choices when catering for workshops, meetings or other events. The guidelines outline that for optimal health, the majority of food intake should include fruit and vegetables and wholegrain bread and cereals.

The objectives of the resource are to:

  • increase the availability of healthy food and beverages to at least 80% of total food offered at catered workshops, meetings or other events
  • decrease the amount of unhealthy food eaten by staff and visitors at catered workshops, meetings or other events.

10 out of 10 deadly health stories - nutrition and physical activity.

Surry Hills, NSW: Aboriginal Health and Medical Research Council of NSW

The 10 out of 10 deadly health stories - nutrition and physical activity booklet presents 10 successful nutrition and physical activity programs from NSW Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Services (ACCHSs). Programs ranged from cooking classes (Cooking classes for diabetes program) and teaching of life skills (Healthy lifestyle and weight management program), to community based activities (Fruit and vegetable program and market garden and Building healthy communities project). Despite the diversity in health topics they all shared several features, namely all were developed and tailored to meet needs identified by the Aboriginal communities in which the ACCHSs are located, and all have taken a 'holistic' approach.

The booklet was developed, produced and distributed by the Aboriginal Health and Medical Research Council (AHMRC) of NSW and funding was provided by the Australian Department of Health and Ageing.

Final report: CSIRO's 3rd National Indigenous Science and Research Roundtable, in conjunction with the Cooperative Research Centre for Aboriginal Health (CRCAH) - nutrition and preventative health in Indigenous futures, 2009.

Adelaide: CSIRO

The 3rd National Indigenous Science and Research Roundtable, co-hosted by CSIRO's National Preventative Health Flagship and the CRC for Aboriginal Health, was held in Adelaide on 4-5 August 2009. This Roundtable fulfilled a commitment to the delegates from the inaugural Roundtable, held in Broome in July 2008, to hold future discussions with a focus on health and nutrition for Indigenous Australians. The purpose of the Roundtable was to seek informed guidance from Indigenous community representatives, scientists, policy formulators, service providers, and colleagues on how CSIRO could collaborate on an Indigenous research response to nutrition and preventative health in Indigenous futures.

The objectives for the Adelaide Roundtable meeting were to:

  • gain Indigenous perspectives on the research needs and priorities on nutrition in preventative health;
  • share knowledge, experiences and stories on how to engage Indigenous Australians in policy, research and research adoption processes to improve their nutrition, health, lifestyles and wellbeing;
  • share insight into CSIRO priorities and research activities relating to Nutrition and Preventative Health in Indigenous Futures;
  • discuss the pathway for Indigenous engagement in current and future research on nutrition and preventative health to assist in achieving measurable impact;
  • discuss nutrition and Indigenous health policies and identify what key policy issues influence research and political agendas.

CSIRO made a commitment to delegates that the Roundtable was the beginning of a focused effort in addressing health and nutrition outcomes with greater impact for Indigenous communities. The first step in this process will be to establish a memorandum of understanding between CSIRO and CRCAH to formalise this collaborative approach to Indigenous health and nutrition. The second step is to form a working party, ‘Working Group for Preventative Health and Nutrition in Indigenous Futures'. The role of the working party will be to prioritise key action areas from the Roundtable and develop future research, health activities, and education programs that aim at addressing the identified issues to provide Australian Indigenous communities with better health and total wellbeing outcomes, now, and into the future.

Everybody's business: remote Aboriginal and Torres Strait community stores.

Canberra: The Parliament of the Commonwealth of Australia

The House of Representatives Standing Committee on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Affairs tabled the report Everybody's Business: Remote Aboriginal and Torres Strait Community Stores in November 2009. The Hon Jenny Macklin MP, Minister for Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs had requested in December 2008 that the Committee inquire into and report on the operation of community stores in remote Aboriginal and Torres Strait communities. The report detailed the findings and recommendations of the committee.

The terms of reference for the Inquiry were:

The Committee shall inquire into and report on the operation of local community stores in remote Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, with a particular focus on:

  • Food supply, quality, cost and competition issues;
  • The effectiveness of the Outback Stores Model, and other private, public and community store models; and
  • The impact of these factors on the health and economic outcomes of communities.

The Committee received over 112 submissions, held 28 public hearings and visited stores in 17 remote Indigenous communities.

Kukumbat gudwan daga: really cooking good food.

Batchelor, NT: Batchelor Press

Kukumbat gudwan daga: really cooking good food is a cookbook of up to 100 healthy recipes for feeding ten or more people.

The recipes are diverse, including traditional recipes such as kangaroo tail stew and introduced favourites such as spaghetti. Created by women from the women's centres of Manyallaluk, Gulin Gulin and Wugularr in conjunction with a chef and a nutritionist from the Fred Hollows Foundation, the cookbook uses local ingredients and provides step by step photographs. The recipes all give ingredients for cooking meals for 10 people, 30 people, 50 people or 100 people, meaning the user does not need to calculate ingredient amounts as is usually the case with regular cookbooks.

This resource is only available in hard copy, via the Batchelor Press Online Store. The cookbook comes with a DVD that includes some episodes from the TV series Shepherd's Pie with Auguie and Major.

Overweight and obesity - Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people: a snapshot, 2004-05.

Canberra: Australian Bureau of Statistics

This ‘snapshot' provides information on overweight and obesity among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people from data collected in the 2004-05 National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health survey (NATSIHS) . Overweight and obesity in this snapshot are calculated from the body mass index (BMI), based on height and weight information. In many cases the height and weight are self-reported, suggesting that the number and proportion of overweight and obese subjects may be underestimated.
The data on overweight and obesity has been analysed in association with: a range of other risk factors, including smoking, alcohol consumption and physical activity; selected dietary factors including food security, daily consumption of fruit and vegetables, and milk consumption; long term health conditions; self-assessed health; and use of health services.

Australia's health 2008: the eleventh biennial health report of the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare.

Canberra: Australian Institute of Health and Welfare

Australia's health 2008 was released by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare as the eleventh edition of its biennial national health report. The report shows that Australia is one of the healthiest nations in the world, with most Australians generally have good health and access to a range of good health care services, but Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples continue to have much poorer health than the general population.

Section 3.2 of the report compiles health information on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. Information about the demographic profile, health status, disability rates, and service use is provided. The section highlights that despite improvements in Indigenous death rates, the overall gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous rates appears to be widening with Indigenous Australians continuing to die at much younger ages. Indigenous Australians also continue to have a greater disease burden, higher rates of disability and a lower quality of life than other Australians. The section concludes with information on behaviours and health risk factors that shape the health status of Indigenous peoples such as tobacco use, alcohol misuse, illicit drug use, and housing conditions.
