Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Performance Framework 2012: detail analysis provides the latest information on how Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are faring according to a range of indicators on health status, determinants of health and health system performance that are based on the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Performance Framework.
