The AIHW annual report 2014–15 was tabled on 29 November 2015.
This annual report reviews the activities and achievements of the AIHW in the 2014–15 financial year. It enables the Australian Parliament, the Australian Government and the people of Australia to assess the efficiency, effectiveness and economy of the AIHW, in accordance with the requirements of the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Act 2013.
The AIHW's 28th annual report, available here as both HTML web pages and as a downloadable PDF, is full of information about who we are and what we do.
I was delighted to be appointed Acting Director of the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare in January 2015.
Before joining the AIHW, I worked in a range of senior Australian government positions focusing on health and welfare policy, both nationally and internationally. I had been representing the Department of Health on the AIHW Board prior to my appointment.
This experience has equipped me with a keen appreciation of the vital work of the AIHW in informing public policy development, and public awareness more generally, in relation to the health and welfare of the Australian population.
I look forward to building on the excellent work of my predecessor, Mr David Kalisch, who was appointed as the Australian Statistician in December 2014. The AIHW made significant progress under his 4-year stewardship.
During the year under review, the AIHW has striven to continue to build on its many strengths-to deliver high quality, relevant, accessible, useful, independent data and analysis-consistent with its mission of 'authoritative information and statistics to promote better health and wellbeing'. And this has occurred against the backdrop of some uncertainty about the organisation's future directions and a shrinking budget.
The continued achievement of the AIHW has been underpinned by the hard work and commitment of our highly qualified staff who I feel privileged to work with. Our work entails a full spectrum of activities, such as establishing nationally consistent data standards and classifications, collecting information from a variety of sources, quality assurance, data reporting and analysis and data linkage. AIHW staff display ongoing attention to detail and sensitivity. They collaborate well with data providers and stakeholders to build common ownership of data improvement strategies.
