The OzHealth App is a condensed version of the thirteenth biennial health report of the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW). It is the most comprehensive and authoritative source of national statistics and information on the health of all Australians.
The OzHealth App provides statistics and fast facts on Australia’s population, life expectancy, births, deaths, international comparisons, population groups, diseases, injury, illicit drug use, tobacco, alcohol consumption, health promotion, organ donation, dietary recommendations, health and medical research, spending on medicines and health, and lifestyle factors that affect health including: physical activity, nutrition, and obesity. The App allows you to compile a list of your favourites for future reference. It also contains a glossary for your easy reference.
The App includes a set of ten multiple choice questions to test your knowledge, drawn from a bank of questions based on the statistics and information contained within the App. Each question contains a hint option which takes you to where the information is listed in the App.
The AIHW is a major national agency set up by the Australian Government under the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare Act to provide reliable, regular and relevant information and statistics on Australia's health and welfare.
