The Liberal National Government will provide the nation’s peak health groups and advisory bodies with $23.5 million over three years to help build a healthier Australia. 

Organisations such as the Australian College of Nursing, the Consumers Health Forum, Lifeline and the Rural Doctors Association will receive funding through the Health Peak and Advisory Bodies Programme so they can continue to contribute engaged, robust and constructive participation. 

Established in 2016, the Health Peak and Advisory Bodies Programme supports a wide range of organisations, and a total of 23 organisations have been provided funding over three years.

This will enable the organisations to play their part in informing the Government’s health agenda through impartial advice, thus contributing to improved health outcomes for Australians.
