The Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW) released its two-yearly health report card, Australia’s health 2022. The report shows that Australia is generally a healthy nation compared with similar countries, notwithstanding some well-known areas for improvement. Australia’s health 2022 also examines changes in the health of Australians throughout the pandemic.
Alongside the health impacts of the pandemic, by bringing together multiple data sources, the report provides a holistic view of the health of Australians and explores topical health issues including factors that influence our health, mental health and changes to mortality over the past 100 years.
The AIHW publishes Australia’s health every two years, and Australia’s welfare in alternate years.
