NPHS Strategy Consultation

Response to Government consultation on the National Preventive Health Strategy

The George Institute for Global Health is pleased to contribute to the consultation on the draft National Preventive Health Strategy.  The George Institute strongly supports the development and implementation of the Strategy. We believe this Strategy is a meaningful step towards an impactful prevention agenda in Australia that will result in better health outcomes.

We particularly wish to congratulate the Government on its commitment to spend 5% of total health expenditure on prevention by 2030, and the development of a ‘Blueprint for Action’. The George Institute’s recommendations in the submission seek to further strengthen and enhance what is already a thorough and well-prepared document.
