This fourth national report on the Indigenous primary health care national Key Performance Indicators (nKPIs) data collection presents annual data on indicators collected from the June 2012 to the June 2016 reporting period. Data for this collection are provided to the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare by 241 primary health care organisations that receive funding from the Department of Health to provide services to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. Some primary health care organisations that report receive additional funding from other sources, including state and territory health departments, while a small number are funded solely by the Northern Territory Government.

The purpose of the nKPIs is to support policy and service planning at the national and state/territory levels, by monitoring progress and highlighting areas for improvement. This report is designed to highlight the major areas of achievement against the nKPIs by primary health care service providers, as well as the areas where organisations can improve the delivery of services to their Indigenous regular clients.
