The Population Health platform aims to understand the needs and priorities of groups that not enough is known about including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people, men and older people. This will inform health and social systems change.

To support self-determination, the platform provides Aboriginal communities in South Australia with administrative data that has been managed and curated in a culturally appropriate manner to measure and monitor health and social inequalities.

The Population Health platform has strong expertise in epidemiological monitoring and data sciences with a focus on the use of administrative data for measuring health inequalities.

The team has invested in outlining and establishing data sovereignty processes for Indigenous data and standardised data management protocols for use across SAHMRI’s Aboriginal Health Equity theme and with partners.
