Australia’s Health 2018 is the 16th biennial report on the health of Australians, released by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW).

The report profiles our health status and use of health services, and takes an in-depth look at topical health issues, including the contribution of risk factors to disease burden; how the health of the population is linked to the natural environment; and the factors contributing to the increasing prevalence of overweight and obesity in our community. It also contains a breadth of information on the health — and health inequalities — experienced by some population groups, including Indigenous Australians.

This publication is available to read or download from the AIHW's Australia's health 2018 webpage. The AIHW also provides the Indigenous Observatory, a repository of information on the health and welfare of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people at http://www.aihw.gov.au/indigenous-observatory/ .
