Allied Health Professions Australia engages in a broad range of advocacy activities designed to influence the decisions and policy making of Federal, State and Territory governments as well as other key stakeholders.
We do this because we believe that an effective contemporary health system should utilise, value, and fund the full contribution of all three health workforces – allied health, medical and nursing. We know that allied health professionals have a crucial role in the Australian health care system but that a range of issue may limit their ability to support consumers.
We welcome suggestions about issues you may encounter as well as contributions to our work. We also encourage individual practitioners to get involved in advocacy activities such as writing to their local MPs when there are issues of particular concern.
