AHCRA is a coalition of peak health organisations working together to create a better and fairer health system for Australia’s future.
While Australia’s health system has many strengths, there are many people in our community who do not receive the care they need. There are also many areas of inefficiency where money and resources are wasted.
AHCRA believes that Australia needs a health system where prevention and health promotion are high priorities and where high quality primary health care is available to all.
We are working with our members to promote a more equitable, efficient and effective health system for Australia’s future.
