The Australian and New Zealand Child Death Review and Prevention Group (ANZCDR&PG) is a collaboration of all state and territory child death review teams across Australia and New Zealand. It was established in 2005, with the aim of developing nationally and internationally comparable child death statistics, to better understand and prevent child deaths.
This report presents information on child mortality from all eight Australian states and territories.
Each jurisdiction has individual legislative bases, differing functions and reporting requirements.
We have prepared this report on behalf of the ANZCDR&PG members. The data has been provided, for the most part, by the ANZCDR&PG members. New Zealand data was unavailable for inclusion in this year’s report.
