The Menzies Centre for Health Policy is a university research centre conducting health policy research, analysis, advice and education. It was established in 2006 by a grant from the Menzies Foundation. The MCHP is uniquely placed as it operates from nodes at two of Australia’s premier universities. One node is part of the School of Public Health at the University of Sydney – MCHP (Sydney); the other node is part of the Crawford School of Public Policy at the Australian National University – MCHP (ANU). The two nodes work collaboratively on shared research grants and operate under a common Board of Directors.

The work of the MCHP focuses on improving public health outcomes through policy innovation and practical implementation. With a program of community engagement, MCHP encourages informed debate about how Australians can influence health policy to ensure that it is consistent with their values and priorities; policies that are able to deliver safe, high quality health care that is sustainable in the long term. The MCHP has a particular interest in the policy conundrums posed by the growing challenge of chronic illness. Its research has demonstrated a strong commitment to patient-centred outcomes.
