This report provides a comprehensive overview of the most recent indicators of the health and wellbeing of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. Information focuses on:

  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander populations
  • the context of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health
  • various measures of population health status
  • selected health conditions
  • health risk and protective factors.

Two new sections are featured in this edition of the Overview. With the 20th anniversary of the Bringing them home report a section has been dedicated to Healing which highlights the contribution of healing workers and organisations to supporting people, families and communities impacted by the Stolen Generations. Environmental health with its important link to the social determinants of health is also included for the first time in the Overview 2016.
