About our Australian Health news

Latest news on health in Australia, covering key topics such as healthcare policies, medical research, public health initiatives, mental health, and the challenges facing the nation's healthcare system.

Australia's healthcare system is a complex mix of public and private services, with Medicare providing universal access to essential medical care for all citizens and permanent residents. The Australian Government Department of Health plays a central role in shaping policies and programs to improve the health and well-being of Australians. Key focus areas include primary care, hospitals, mental health, aged care, and preventive health measures.

Stay informed about the latest developments in medical research and innovation in Australia, from breakthroughs in cancer treatment to advances in digital health technologies. Major research institutions like the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) and the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) are at the forefront of these efforts, working to improve health outcomes for Australians and contribute to global health knowledge.

Our health feed also covers important public health initiatives and campaigns, such as efforts to reduce smoking rates, promote healthy eating and physical activity, and address the growing burden of chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease. We also keep you updated on the latest mental health news and initiatives, including the implementation of the National Mental Health Plan and the work of organisations like Beyond Blue and Headspace in supporting the mental well-being of Australians.

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought unprecedented challenges to Australia's healthcare system, and our feed provides comprehensive coverage of the nation's response, from the rollout of vaccines to the impact on hospitals and aged care facilities. We also explore the longer-term implications of the pandemic for public health, mental health, and the healthcare workforce.

Other key topics covered in our Australian health news feed include indigenous health inequalities, rural and remote health services, the rising cost of healthcare, and the debates around issues like voluntary assisted dying and medicinal cannabis. We bring you a range of perspectives from health experts, policymakers, and consumer advocates to provide a balanced and informative overview of these complex issues.

Whether you're a healthcare professional, a policymaker, or simply someone who wants to stay informed about the health issues that matter to Australians, our NewsNow feed on health in Australia is your comprehensive source for the latest news, analysis, and insights in this vital area.
