Overall, for every dollar spent on health-care for non-Indigenous Australian, $1.39 was spent on Indigenous Australian, according to a report by the Australian Institute for Health and Welfare.

In 2008-09, health expenditure for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people varied across remoteness areas, service types and disease groupings, according to the AIHW report.

The greatest difference in expenditure between indigenous and non-indigenous Australians was in remote and very remote areas where, for every dollar spent per non-indigenous Australian, $2.41 was spent per indigenous Australian.
