About us

The Australian Institute of Health and Welfare acknowledges the Traditional Owners of Country throughout Australia and recognises their continuing connection to lands, waters and communities. We pay our respect to the people, the cultures and Elders past and present.

The AIHW is an independent statutory Australian Government agency producing authoritative and accessible information and statistics to inform and support better policy and service delivery decisions, leading to better health and wellbeing for all Australians.

We are focused on turning data into useful information and telling the broader story.

Learn more about how we support the delivery of stronger evidence, better decisions, improved health and welfare in the video below.
