AHHA 2020-21 Pre-Budget Submission

19 December 2019

AHHA is Australia’s national peak body for public hospitals and healthcare providers. Our membership includes state and territory health departments, Local Hospital Networks and hospitals, community health services, Primary Health Networks and primary healthcare providers, aged care providers, universities, individual health professionals and academics. As such, we are uniquely placed to be an independent, national voice for universal high-quality healthcare to benefit the whole community.

The 2020-21 Budget will be the first passed down since the May 2019 re-election of the Morrison Government. This provides the opportunity to take decisive steps to reform the Australian healthcare system and to provide additional resources in areas of known need.

All states and territories have now signed-on to the Heads of Agreement for the 2020-25 National Health Agreement and meaningful action must be taken around the various areas for reform listed in this agreement.
