Health and wellbeing of children and young people are the keys to human capability of future generations. Human capability includes the capacity to participate in economic, social and civil activities and be a valued contributor to society;1 it means that not only can you usefully live, work and vote, but you can be a good parent to your children.

There were an estimated 200 245 First Nations2 children aged 0–14 years in Australia in 2011, comprising 4.9% of the total child population and 35% of the total First Nations population.3 With such a high proportion of children compared with the non-Aboriginal population, the First Nations population is much younger, with fewer adults per child to care for them. An Australian Research Alliance for Children and Youth report adds to evidence from the most recent Australian Institute of Health and Welfare report on the health of Australia’s children to document the growing divide between the health of First Nations and other Australian children.
Healthy for Life (HfL) is the first Office for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health (OATSIH)–funded program with a strong focus on continuous quality improvement (CQI). It collects and reports on health outcome data that go beyond service activity reporting. The formal objectives of the program are to: • improve services on child and maternal health care • improve men’s health • improve prevention, early detection and management of chronic disease and • increase the capacity of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health workforce for improving longterm health outcomes for Indigenous Australians.
Continuing to close the health gap will require innovation; long-term, systematic approaches that improve the quality and integrity of data; collaborations and partnerships that reflect an ecological approach to health, and recognition of the proper place and contribution of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in Australian society
