Advancing Quality of Life in Australia

Australia ranks second in the United Nations’ annual Human Development Index–-a measure of quality of life, public health, social wealth, and education. However, Indigenous Australians by themselves would rank 122nd.  We at Abt believe we are obligated to help close this gap. Our work in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health, social well-being, youth justice, and primary health care acknowledges that life does not deal everyone an equal hand. Through these efforts, we have seen a decline in preterm births since 2012 and an increase in infant immunization rates, among other important indicators of improving health and well-being.
