|Description: ||About this report
On 6 August 2015 The George Institute Australia hosted a roundtable to deliberate on the future of healthcare funding in Australia, and to formulate policy recommendations in this area. The aim was to examine the financial reforms needed to ensure the Australian health system is sustainable, equitable and able to respond to the growing burden of chronic disease and injury.
Three broad questions were addressed during this roundtable:
• What is the nature of the problem and what are the goals of reform?
• What are the best options for healthcare funding reform in Australia?
• How do we implement these reforms?
The roundtable took place in Sydney with over 30 stakeholders from different parts of the health sector (participants listed at the end of this report) and was Co-Chaired by Professor Vlado Perkovic and Professor Stephen Jan from The George Institute for Global Health.|
