A collection of resources related to Australia's health 2020.
Australia’s health 2020 is AIHW’s 17th biennial flagship report on health. It explores topical health issues and brings together multiple data sources to serve as a report card on the health of Australians. The report considers health to be much more than the presence or absence of disease—health reflects the complex interactions of a person’s genetics, lifestyle and environment, and is fundamental to an individual’s wellbeing.
Australia’s health 2020 introduces a new format and expanded product suite:
Australia’s health 2020: data insights contains original articles on selected health issues and presents an overview of health data in Australia. The common theme across all the articles is the importance of data, and of building the evidence base for achieving long-term, sustainable improvements in heath and health care for all Australians. It is available as a print report and online.
Australia’s health snapshots are 71 web pages that present easily digestible interactive information on a range of health topics including: health status, determinants of health, health systems, health of population groups and the health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. They are available online.
Australia’s health 2020: in brief is a short summary of key findings from the online snapshots to provide a holistic picture of health in Australia. It is available as a print report and online.
The AIHW manages a number of national health information assets, and works with state and territory governments, the ABS, other independent bodies and the non-government sector, to ensure the data included in Australia’s health 2020 are comprehensive, accurate and informative. Although there have been many improvements to national health data over recent years, many gaps remain—these gaps, along with other limitations, are highlighted in Australia’s health 2020: data insights.
The AIHW’s flagship reports, Australia’s health and Australia’s welfare, are highly regarded as sources of authoritative and accessible information.
