The International Group on Indigenous Health Measurement is a network of people from government and non-government arenas from Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and the United States who are united in the desire to improve the collection, analysis, dissemination and use of health information for Indigenous populations.

In Australia, the National Advisory Group on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Information and Data (NAGATSIHID) is the principal committee responsible for providing broad strategic advice on ways to improve the quality and availability of data and information on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health and health service delivery. NAGATSIHID also draws together a range of Indigenous health information management activities into a coordinated and strategic process.

National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Data Principles

In 2006, the Australian Health Ministers' Advisory Council (AHMAC) endorsed a set of national data principles National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Data Principles (180KB DOC) which aim to guide and improve the use of information relating to the health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians.
