Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Performance Framework (HPF) 2012

Changes to the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander HPF*

The HPF was designed to measure the impact of the National Strategic Framework for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health (NSFATSIH) and will be an important tool for developing the new National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Plan (NATSIHP).

In 2011, a review of the HPF was undertaken in consultation with the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Standing Committee# (NATSIHSC) and the National Advisory Group on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Information and Data (NAGATSIHID) in order to align the framework to the current policy environment. A revised framework was endorsed by the Australian Health Ministers Advisory Council (AHMAC) in December 2011. The review resulted in four new measures, five deletions, and two combined measures. These, and other minor changes, are outlined and can be accessed from the following:
