NPHIC members only access

TEG members only access

Two committees oversee the development of the national data collection project: the National Prisoner Health Information Committee (NPHIC) (formerly Prisoner Health Information Group (PHIG)) and the Technical Expert Group (TEG).

NPHIC was born from discussions involving the Standing Committee on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health (SCATSIH), the Centre for Health Research in Criminal Justice, and the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW) in late 2004. NPHIC occupies a central advisory role in the development of the prisoner health development project.

Reporting directly to NPHIC, TEG provides technical advice and assistance for the proposed national data collection.

Membership on the committees includes representatives from the Departments responsible for prisoner health in each State and Territory, Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS), the National Drug Research Institute and the AIHW.
