Did you know the AIHW uses Twitter and YouTube?
Twitter is being used more and more at the AIHW to keep followers informed about new releases and goings on at AIHW. We now have over 10,000 followers!
The AIHW's YouTube channel offers audiences another platform from which they can access AIHW information. We recently produced a series of short videos associated with the report Australian Burden of Disease Study: impact and causes of illness and death in Australia 2011. These videos provide a simple summary of some of the report's key themes.
We also have AIHW apps on the Apple iOS platform—OzHealth, OzWelfare and Indigenous Health and Welfare Statistics—all free!
These apps present facts and figures in interesting, colourful, and easy-to-use formats, making them particularly valuable for students and teachers, and giving the general public an engaging view of health and welfare statistics. The apps also include a comprehensive glossary and additional information about the AIHW. The OzHealth and OzWelfare apps each include a multiple-choice question quiz, with answers and scores, drawn from a bank of questions within the app.
To coincide with the release of the Australia's health 2016 report on 13 September, we released an Android version of the OzHealth app, which allows Android users and those who use Google Play to access the app.
