Burden of disease First Peoples health Australia

The Australian Burden of Disease Study (ABDS) 2018 is based on the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare’s previous burden of disease studies and provides an update of the Australian-specific burden of disease estimates for both the Australian and Indigenous Australian populations.

This study provides estimates of burden in Indigenous Australians for the reference year 2018, and recalculations of the 2011 and 2003 estimates using new data sources and methods, where applicable. This report is a summary of the ABDS 2018 findings for Indigenous Australians.
