Initiatives and programs
We're working on a range of policy initiatives, programs and campaigns to help improve your health and the health of all Australians.
DoctorConnect provides information to international medical graduates and their employers. It aims to help international medical graduates understand the steps required to work as a doctor in Australia, where they can work and restrictions on billing patients under Medicare.
The Medical Research Future Fund (MRFF) is supporting our inspiring researchers to discover the next penicillin, pacemaker, cervical cancer vaccine, or cochlear ear.
The National Immunisation Program (NIP) was set up by the Commonwealth and state and territory governments in 1997. It aims to increase national immunisation coverage to reduce the number of cases of diseases that are preventable by vaccination in Australia.
