Australia's health tracker by area - 2016

24 November 2016

A digital platform from Victoria University, Australia’s Health Tracker by Area reveals that West Australians have low rates of high blood pressure (9.3%) while Tasmania’s blood pressure is soaring (12.1% have high blood pressure).

Australia’s Health Tracker by Area is developed by the Australian Health Policy Collaboration at Victoria University with the Public Health Information and Development Unit at Torrens University.

Available to media, health professionals, policy makers and academics, the digital platform hosts a series of maps and filters which provide localised data on chronic diseases and their risk factors at the local government, primary health network, population and state level.

It includes obesity, high blood pressure, cancer screening, early deaths by chronic disease and suicide rates.
