Bettering Aboriginal Heart Health in Western Australia (BAHHWA)
The BAHHWA Report was completed in December 2014. The BAHHWA project has produced an important body of work concerning heart disease among Aboriginal Western Australians. In this Report we present a range of these results, aiming to influence the policy and organisational factors that impact on Aboriginal heart health. By providing epidemiological, service and cost information about Aboriginal inequities in disease occurrence, care and outcomes, this Report has a focus on initiating and supporting health system change. Health care providers, the organisations they work in, and policy makers all have a significant role in improving Aboriginal health outcomes. We hope this Report will be useful to clinicians (doctors, nurses, Aboriginal health professionals, health promotion staff, allied health practitioners), those in policy and planning (politicians, peak interest groups, health service managers) and those providing education and training (universities, professional bodies, Aboriginal training organisations).
