Australia has a proud history of universal healthcare and continues to expand services to provide for people in need; healthcare is also one of the government’s largest budget items. The Post Budget Health Briefing is a tradition that enables critical stakeholders in the sector to engage directly with the Minister for Health in the days following the annual budget, providing key insights into the future of Australia’s healthcare system.
In 2018, AIPS launched the Opposition Post Budget Health Briefing, to offer the right of rebuttal to the Opposition Shadow Health Minister. Both events are valuable chances for stakeholders to engage at the highest level of policy and gain insights into changes in the sector.
As you are aware the situation with the spread of COVID-19 is evolving and in the light of Government announcements both of these meetings are postponed to a date following the revised Federal Budget in October 2020.
