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 and Aged Care, the Hon Mark Butler MP,  in the days following the second budget for 2022 , providing key insights into the future of Australia’s healthcare system.


In 2018, AIPS launched the Opposition Post Budget Breakfast Health Briefing, to offer the right of rebuttal to the Opposition Shadow Health Minister, Senator Anne Ruston MP. The next briefing will be after the regular budget sitting in early 2023.
