South Australian Aboriginal Health Landscape

The South Australian Aboriginal Health Landscape is a population level study of the health of Aboriginal people in South Australia and the social conditions that affect their health at a local level.

Lead Organisation:

Wardliparingga Aboriginal Research Unit, SAHMRI

Project Overview:  

The South Australian Aboriginal Landscape project will report on the health of Aboriginal people in South Australia and the social conditions that affect their health to better understand their needs and help plan for services to be available where they are most needed. The report will focus on health, health risk indicators and related social conditions in each of 18 areas (called clusters) of South Australia where Aboriginal people are more likely to live. Where appropriate, as well as reporting on the health of the Aboriginal population in each area, comparisons will be made between the health of local Aboriginal people and their non-Aboriginal counterparts.

The Aboriginal community will have a strong influence over what is reported and how information is presented. An advisory group of Aboriginal people are guiding the project on the most important information to report and how best to report it for the benefit of the Aboriginal community. Information will not be published where it might risk identifying an individual.

Once the report is created, information from it will be made available in ways that best match the needs of local communities.
