Adelaide: Government of South Australia

This case study forms part of the Health Performance Council’s 2015-18 four-yearly review program which reports on the performance of the South Australian health system, including how the system performs for specific and vulnerable population groups. It provides a review of available data to analyse three key issues:

  • the health and wellbeing status of Aboriginal people in South Australia (SA)
  • the workforce participation of Aboriginal people in SA in the health sector
  • the effectiveness of the health system in providing services to Aboriginal people in SA.

This case study is not intended to provide a comprehensive overview of the health of Aboriginal people in SA or of their interaction with the state’s health system.
