This report represents the results of the first phase of the Victorian Aboriginal Child Mortality Study (VACMS). The VACMS addresses the critical issue of incomplete data describing Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander vital statistics, particularly focusing on maternal and infant birth outcomes and infant and child mortality.
The VACMS uses an innovative method and research process to further reform the quality of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander data in health information systems.
