What's your health story?

 

Tell us by taking part in the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Survey (NATSIHS)  - Interviewers from the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) are now knocking on doors in your area, so make your story heard!

The NATSIHS collects information about the health status of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. We will ask you a range of questions face-to-face about your health and lifestyle, such as:

• visits to doctors, nurses or Aboriginal health workers

• health conditions

• medications

• smoking

• exercise

• what you eat and drink

You will have the opportunity to take part in a voluntary hearing test and have some physical measurements taken, if you agree (height, weight, waist and blood pressure).
