This report is a data visualisation tool for tracking progress against the 20 Implementation Plan goals for the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Plan 2013–2023. It presents data for each of the 20 goals, and assesses progress against the goals at the national level.
In October 2015, the Australian Government released the Implementation Plan for the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Plan 2013–2023. The Implementation Plan outlines the actions to be taken by the Australian Government, the Aboriginal community controlled health sector, and other key stakeholders to give effect to the vision, principles, priorities, and strategies of the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Plan 2013–2023.
The Implementation Plan has set goals to be achieved by 2023 for 20 indicators. These goals were developed to complement the existing COAG Closing the Gap targets, and focus on prevention and early intervention across the life course.
In March 2018, the tool was updated with new data for 11 of the 20 goals, including those for maternal health, childhood immunisation and health checks. For these 11 goals, 6 remain on track, and 5 are not on track. New data for the remaining 9 goals is not yet available, with ‘on track’ status for 5 of these still not able to be assessed.
