About the AIHW

The Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW) is an independent statutory agency.

We produce authoritative and accessible information and statistics to inform and support better policy and service delivery decisions, leading to better health and wellbeing for all Australians.

The AIHW has more than 30 years of experience working with health and welfare data. We enjoy national and international recognition for our statistical expertise and proven track record in providing high quality, independent advice.

We work with a broad range of stakeholders – with some of our relationships dating back to our establishment in 1987. We convene or participate in around 100 committees with experts from many different subject areas, meaning we're informed by contemporary best practice and a wide range of perspectives.

The AIHW releases around 180 products a year. This includes our substantial and well-researched flagship publications, Australia's health and Australia's welfare.

Releases that are specific to Indigenous Australians are available at the AIHW’s reports on Indigenous health and welfare.
