Abstract

This latest Summary of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health provides an up-to-date, plain language summary of the health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. It includes Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander-specific information on:

  • population
  • births
  • deaths
  • common health conditions
  • key health risk and protective factors.

The Summary has been prepared by the HealthInfoNet as part of its effort to help 'close the gap' by providing the evidence base to inform practice and policy in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health. The Summary aims to make this information available to all people, including those without a specialised knowledge of the health field. This year we are pleased to present our new-look Summary. This Summary uses a range of visual aids to assist readers to quickly and easily understand the data presented throughout.

This Summary is based on the Overview of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health status, 2018.
