    Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Assessment

    Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Check

    The health check is available each year, to all persons who identify as Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander descent.

    Indigenous people have a higher incidence of illness and higher mortality rate than other Australians, therefore regular health checks should help to reduce or prevent serious illness by early detection and treatment.

    • The purpose of this health check is to ensure all indigenous people receive optimum level of health care
    • To encourage early detection and diagnosis of common and treatable diseases
    • To reduce the incidence of common and treatable diseases that cause considerable morbidity and early mortality

    Access to Queensland Indigenous Health can be arranged for further management of health care if required. This health check normally includes your registration for the “Close the Gap” programme.
