AIHW launches OzWelfare app to partner OzHealth

The Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW) has released an OzWelfare app for iPad and iPhone providing key facts and figures from the 2013 Australia's welfare report.

Like the OzHealth app launched last year, the data is a condensed version of the AIHW's 13th biennial health report and is a comprehensive source of national statistics on the health of all Australians.

It includes a fact sheet exploring different topics, a detailed glossary and an interactive quiz to allow users to test their knowledge. The quiz involves 10 multiple choice questions drawn from a bank of questions based on the statistics and information contained within the app. Each question contains a hint option which takes users to where the information is listed in the app.

It also has a user favourites page to enable easy access to topics of interest.

It is a partner app to the OzHealth version, which contains statistics and fast facts on Australia's population, life expectancy, births, deaths, international comparisons, population groups, diseases, injury, illicit drug use, tobacco, alcohol consumption, health promotion, organ donation, dietary recommendations, health and medical research, spending on medicines and health, and lifestyle factors that affect health.

The OzHealth app is due for a data update later this year.

Both apps are free and are available from the App Store. They have been optimised for the iPad and iPhone.
