Policy Agenda


Australians expect a world-class, financially sustainable health care system that increases life expectancy and quality of life.

Australian governments are spending more than they earn, with projected growth in health spending to be an increasing strain on budgets in the years ahead unless action is taken.

If we wish to affordably maintain or improve our health outcomes and services in the years ahead, we must move deliberately to redesign health spending programs to deliver greater value, and reduce waste and inefficiency.
