The 2016 Australian Federal Election: Health Announcements
Health is always one of the top issues the electorate considers in determining how their vote should be cast.
To assist members to evaluate the health policies announced during the 2016 election campaign, the Australian Private Hospitals Association (APHA) has compiled a comprehensive list of all the major health-related policy announcements made to date by the Coalition, the Australian Labor Party, and the Greens.
Please feel free to share this resource as you see fit.
The list will continue to be updated as new policies are announced during the election campaign.
