The health of Queenslanders is a report from the Chief Health Officer to inform Queenslanders about the health status of the population. This report is published every two years and commenced in 2006. The Queensland Government is committed to informing Queenslanders about the performance of the health system through regular reporting on the health status and burden of disease of the state's population.
With the goal to continue to improve health outcomes, information from these reports will inform and guide Queensland Health, Hospital and Health Services and other key stakeholders around service planning. In addition, these reports will be an essential source of reference for those needing quick access to health data to inform planning or to answer media or public enquiries.
These reports are intended for a wide variety of users, including population health practitioners, planners, policy analysts, researchers, students and the general public.
This fifth report of the Chief Health Officer Queensland captures a broad range of information at state and regional levels about the health status of the population. For the first time in the series, Hospital and Health Service data is reported.
