The Health of Aboriginal Children and Young People

Output from the Western Australian Aboriginal Child Health Survey: The Health of Aboriginal Children and Young People, was launched on 3 June 2004. This is the first of a proposed five volumes of results to flow from this groundbreaking work in the field of Aboriginal child health and development research.

Future volumes investigate the relationship between Aboriginal children and young people and:

    • Social and emotional well-being;
    • Education;
    • Family and community; and
    • The justice system.
This large-scale investigation into the health and development of 5,289 Western Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children was undertaken by the Telethon Institute for Child Health Research in conjunction with the Kulunga Research Network.

The WA office of the ABS provided technical advice and practical support to the project. The survey was designed to build the knowledge to develop preventative strategies that promote and maintain the healthy development and the social, emotional, academic, and vocational well-being of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children.

A copy of the report The Health of Aboriginal Children and Young People can be purchased from the
Telethon Institute for Child Health Research, PO Box 855, WEST PERTH.
A PDF version of the main publication, and the summary booklet can be downloaded from the Telethon Institute for Child Health Research web site
