Expenditure on health for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people 2010-11: an analysis by remoteness and disease (AIHW)

Expenditure on health for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people 2010-11: an analysis by remoteness and disease provides a detailed analysis of health expenditure for Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians in 2010-11. Estimates are disaggregated at the regional level, as well as for specific disease and injury groups. For selected services, expenditure increased with remoteness for both Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians. The disease groups that accounted for the highest proportion of admitted patient expenditure for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people were genitourinary diseases ($195 million or 11% of Indigenous admitted patient expenditure), which includes the cost of dialysis treatment.
