The Australian Health Care Reform Alliance (AHCRA) is a coalition of peak health groups working towards a better health system for Australia’s future.
Australia’s health system has developed over several generations and no longer meets the needs of our urban and rural communities. Many Australians are missing out on the care they need or not receiving the best possible care for their condition. There is a growing gap in health and the provision of care which is undermining the fairness of our society.
Australia needs to make major changes to its healthcare system to make it better and fairer for all. With an ageing population and increasing demand for appropriate care, we need to ensure that every dollar we spend on health care delivers maximum value. We also need to make sure that our health system reflects the values of our community.
