National Health Reform Agreement

The Federal Government has announced that, in partnership with states and territories, a National Health Reform Agreement has been reached which will deliver better health care for all Australians and secure the sustainability of Australia's health system into the future.

The agreement cements the commitment made at the 13 February Council of Australian Governments meeting, and will see all governments working together to reform the health system. This agreement will build on the work already progressed to date.

Under the agreement, all governments have agreed to major reforms to the organisation, funding and delivery of health and aged care.

These reforms aim to deliver better access to services, improved local accountability and transparency, greater responsiveness to local communities and provide a stronger financial basis for our health system into the future through increased Commonwealth funding.

The agreement, fact sheets and supporting documents available here.
