The relative effectiveness of Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Services compared with mainstream health service

 

The health status of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people is much poorer than the population as a whole. In order to address this disparity, the Australian Government funds Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Services (ACCHS) to provide a range of primary health care services to Aboriginal people. This Evidence Brief examines the evidence on the effectiveness of ACCHS found in the academic literature, assesses its quality, and analyses the implications for policymakers.
