An Overview of Health Status, Health Care and Public Health in Australia. Occasional Papers Series Number 5.
Australia is now much better placed to describe patterns of health and health inequity than it was even five years ago. This capacity needs to be further developed especially in moving away from more traditional health indicators such as mortality, morbidity and risk factors to other dimensions of health such as community capacity, and locational disadvantage. There also needs to be more emphasis on developing process or intermediate indicators for strategies such as intersectoral action and healthy public policy goals such as improved food supply.
