Overview

Access to quality health and welfare services is an important contributor to good health and wellbeing. It is particularly important for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, given their comparatively poorer health outcomes. The Australian Government funds a wide range of Indigenous-specific health and welfare services to ensure that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders have access to appropriate care.

More reports and statistics on Indigenous Australians can be found under The health & welfare of Australia's Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander people and Indigenous Australians.
