This brochure presents a summary of findings and recommendations from an Australia-Indonesia Centre project, where we were commissioned to develop a comprehensive reporting framework for NCDs in Indonesia and Australia (the later being the focus of this policy brief).
We defined a comprehensive framework for NCDs in Australia, which considered diseases of public health and policy relevance. We assessed the quality of currently available NCD data, and defined indicators to measure key diseases and their risks. We also reported an NCD profile for Australia, with a sub-analysis of NCDs amongst Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians.
