Access to health and services for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people – AIHW – 5 May 2011

“Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people (Indigenous Australians) typically die at much younger ages than other Australians and are more likely to experience disability and reduced quality of life because of ill health. One important contributor to health and wellbeing is access to health services. This paper examines Indigenous Australians’ use of a range of health services, including those that provide preventive, primary and community health, hospital or specialised care.”
