The Australian Institute of Health and Welfare is a national agency for health and welfare statistics, analysis and information and contributes to better statistics and information for better health and welfare for all Australians. We also inform policy and community debate by highlighting health and welfare issues affecting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
