Based on the principles of equity, efficiency and universality, Medicare is increasingly under pressure as Australia’s population ages, suffers an increasing number of chronic health conditions and demands more complex and costly treatments.

The Medicare 30th Anniversary Roundtable, hosted by the Australian Healthcare and Hospitals Association and the Menzies Centre for Health Policy brought together expert speakers and stakeholders to discuss the question: Is Medicare sustainable in its current form?
