This program currently reports on 21 Aboriginal Health Key Performance Indicators and committed to improve primary health care services for Aboriginal Australians in the NT by building capacity at the service level, and to collect, analyse and interpret data at the system level that will:

  • inform understanding of trends in individual and population health outcomes
  • identify factors influencing these trends
  • inform appropriate action, planning and policy development. 

 

The system is sponsored by the Northern Territory (NT) Aboriginal Health Forum, which comprises of the Commonwealth Department of Health, Aboriginal Medical Services Alliance of the Northern Territory and Northern Territory Department of Health.
