Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health performance framework 2017 report
Canberra: Department of the Prime Minster and Cabinet

This is the sixth report against the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health performance framework (HPF). The HPF monitors progress in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health outcomes, health system performance and the broader determinants of health. This report includes updates for all administrative data collections and also the ABS National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander social survey results for 2014-15. The health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people is improving for a number of measures, although there remain many areas where further concerted effort will be needed to achieve improvements in health outcomes. Data quality limitations and the small size of many estimates affect the ability to effectively monitor Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health and the performance of the health system.

The 2017 HPF report is supported by detailed analyses including dynamic data displays with interactive charts and online tables published by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare.
