Twenty-one health groups across Australia will share $23.7 million over three years thanks to the Australian Government’s National Preventative Health Strategy, furthering support for the health and wellbeing of all Australians.

Organisations such as the National Rural Health Alliance, the Consumer Health Forum, and the Public Health Association of Australia will receive funding through the third round of the Health Peak and Advisory Bodies Program so they can continue engaged, robust and constructive participation in the national health agenda.

The Morrison Government’s National Preventive Health Strategy is a 10-year plan to improve the health and wellbeing of all Australians at all stages of life.

The strategy seeks to improve Australia’s health system, fundamentally focused on the treatment of illness and disease, by increasing the focus on prevention – from illness to wellness, and from healthcare to health.
