The aim of the Health Peak and Advisory Bodies Program (the Program) is to enable health peak and advisory bodies to contribute to the Australian Government’s national health agenda. This is achieved by supporting successful organisations to:

  • provide expert, evidence-based and impartial advice to inform current health policy and program priorities, and engaging in communication and consultation activities. The National Preventive Health Strategy outlines key priority areas within the health agenda and peak bodies able to support these will be viewed favourably;
  • build sector capacity to engage and effectively advise Government; and
  • improve links, networks and cooperation with members, the health sector, the wider community and the Australian Government.
