Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health services report, 2010-11: OATSIH services reporting - key results.

Canberra: Australian Institute of Health and Welfare

This report presents the main findings from the Office for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health (OATSIH) Services Reporting data collection. Data were collected by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW) from primary health-care services, substance use services and Bringing Them Home and Link Up counselling services that received funding through OATSIH in 2010-11. The health services included those provided through Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal community controlled health organisations.

The information covered the number of clients seen, episodes of care and client contacts. This information helps to inform Indigenous health policy, and program development and implementation. Primary health care services provided 2.5 million episodes of care to about 428,000 Indigenous clients; substance use services provided treatment and assistance to about 28,600 clients and Bringing Them Home and Link Up counselling services were accessed by about 11,800 clients.
