Playing Number Games with Indigenous Australians' Health

Aboriginal and Islander Health Worker Journal
Volume 35 Issue 4 (Jun 2011)

Abstract: The Australian Institute for Health and Welfare (AIHW) has released its latest report on how much money the Commonwealth and State governments spend on the health of Indigenous Australians. Despite being packaged as good news, there are fundamental problems with the messages contained in the report. Aptly titled Expenditure on Health for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, 2008-09, the report estimates that average health expenditure per person was $6,787 for Indigenous Australians in 2008-09, compared with $4,876 for each non-Indigenous Australian.
