How Australia compares (AIHW)

How Australia compares (AIHW) | Health & Human Development Unit 3 | Scoop.it

Australia compares very well with other nations for life expectancy, according to United Nations estimates.

For males, Australia has the joint fourth-highest life expectancy in the world (along with Switzerland) over the period 2005-10. Only Iceland, Japan and Hong Kong have higher male life expectancy than Australia.

Australia also has the joint third-highest female life expectancy. As in most countries, female life expectancy is higher than male life expectancy in Australia. However, in countries badly affected by HIV/AIDS (including Swaziland, Mozambique and Zimbabwe), males have similar or higher life expectancy than women.

It should be noted that these are estimates to facilitate international comparison, and should be used with caution as they are based on mortality rates for different years.

Health Status: Health experiences of men and women

Health Status: Health experiences of men and women | Health & Human Development Unit 3 | Scoop.it

Males and females do not face the same biological risk of disease. Females are thought to have an advantage which makes them more resistant to a range of conditions. One specific difference is that female sex hormones protect against diseases associated with the build up of harmful cholesterol (this protection is lost at menopause).1 Women's reproductive function, however, increases their biological risk. Pregnancy and childbirth can cause illness, be generally debilitating and in rare cases cause death.

Changes in the Health Status of Low Income Groups in Australia, 1977-78 to 1995

Changes in the Health Status of Low Income Groups in Australia, 1977-78 to 1995 | Health & Human Development Unit 3 | Scoop.it

Across all measures of health status studied, and in all four surveys, low income people reported poorer health than
did other Australians. The health gap between low income and other Australians increased between 1977-78 and 1995,
when income inequalities remained relatively stable (after accounting for changes in government social policies).

The article is about skin cancer and the dangers of spending too much time in the sun.
This article is good because people who read might become aware of the dangers of too much time in the sun and how important it is to wear sunscreen.
This relates to our topic because we studied skin cancer in class.
