The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Performance Framework (HPF) monitors progress in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health outcomes, health system performance and the broader determinants of health (such as employment, education and safety). The HPF is a comprehensive source of evidence designed to inform policy, planning, program development and research.

Beginning in 2006, HPF reports have been released every 2-3 years. The HPF includes data analysis drawn from over 60 data collections, findings from research and evaluations, and analysis of implications of the evidence for government, health services and the research sector.

The HPF consists of 68 measures across three domains (Tiers):

  • Tier 1 - Health status and outcomes
  • Tier 2 - Determinants of health
  • Tier 3 - Health system performance

On 8 December 2020, the HPF was released on a new website. The new website is a dynamic and flexible resource, providing greater access to the data and analysis as well as including all prior HPF publications in the one location. This new format will enable updates to be uploaded more regularly into the future.

The HPF website was developed by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW) and the NIAA.

Previous reports can be accessed from the publications page of the HPF website.
