Holman D, Joyce SJ (2014)

A promising future: WA Aboriginal health programs: review of performance with recommendations for consolidation and advance.

Perth, WA: Department of Health, Western Australia

This report, also known as The Holman Review, evaluated the effectiveness of state-funded Indigenous health programs in Western Australia (WA), focusing on the measurement and achievement of clinical health outcomes. The report examined 184 Indigenous health programs and found that the majority deliver value for money and are underpinned by scientific evidence.

The report also found that primary prevention programs are under-funded relative to their significance and that service delivery in regional areas is fragmented. The report recommends that changes be made to the way the WA Department of Health funds and contracts Indigenous health services. The report was commissioned by the WA Department of Health at the request of the State Government and was prepared by independent expert Winthrop Professor D'Arcy Holman, Professor of Public Health at the University of WA.

Canberra: Australian Institute of Health and Welfare

This report provides a summary of fatal and serious injury of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in Australia due to land transport accidents over the five-year period from 2005-06 to 2009-10. Due to data quality issues, Tasmania and the Australian Capital Territory were not included.

This is the fourth in a series of reports dealing with injury to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people due to transport. The main focus of the report is unintentional injury due to land transport. It includes information on:
