The Department of Health and Aged Care is committed to achieving our vision of better health and wellbeing for all Australians, now and for future generations. Our strategic priorities are to drive better health and ageing outcomes for all Australians; deliver an affordable, quality health and aged care system; and promote better sport outcomes.
Our purpose is to support the Government to lead and shape Australia’s health and aged care system and sporting outcomes through evidence-based policy, well targeted programs and best practice regulation. We will achieve this through six outcomes – health system policy, design and innovation; health access and support services; sport and recreation; individual health benefits; regulation, safety and protection; and ageing and aged care.
