Canberra: Australian Institute of Health and Welfare

This publication is the second national report on the Indigenous primary health care national key performance indicators (nKPIs) data collection. Data for this collection are provided to the AIHW by primary health care organisations who receive funding from the Department of Health to provide services to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

The purpose of the nKPIs is to improve the delivery of primary health care services by supporting continuous quality improvement (CQI) activity among service providers. The nKPIs also support policy and planning at the national and state and territory level by monitoring progress and highlighting areas for improvement.

The report presents data on 19 indicators which focus on chronic disease prevention and management and maternal and child health.
