Every two years the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW) releases a report card on the nation’s health and health system.

Australia’s health 2012—in brief provides highlights from the thirteenth report in this series, Australia’s health 2012. It contains key comparisons and trends to answer questions such as:

  • how healthy are Australians?
  • in what areas can we do better?
  • what actions promote good health?
  • who pays for health?

We invite readers to consult Australia’s health 2012 or contact the AIHW to explore topics in greater depth.
