Indigenous Eye Health at Melbourne University have prepared jurisdictional snapshots of some of the key data available in Indigenous Eye Health Measures in Australia 2017, released by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare in April 2018.
The snapshots include analysis of measures on eye health and access to eye care services for Indigenous Australians at both jurisdictional and Primary Health Network level.
The latest AIHW report demonstrates that progress is being made. However, more work is needed to address a range of inequities if we are to close the gap for vision by 2020.
