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, the Hon Greg Hunt MP,  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 Breakfast Health Briefing, to offer the right of rebuttal to the Opposition Shadow Health Minister, the Hon Mark Butler MP . Both events are valuable chances for stakeholders to engage at the highest level of policy and gain insights into changes in the sector.
