Given the unprecedented demand that COVID19 is placing on Australia’s healthcare system, now more than ever it is important to examine the funding of healthcare in Australia. The Australian Healthcare Funding Summit will examine the funding of Australia’s healthcare system and facilitate constructive discussion and debate around key issues relating to the reform and sustainable funding of healthcare in Australia to get the best possible outcomes.
