The Consumers Health Forum of Australia (CHF) will be holding their Annual General Meeting (AGM) on Monday 23 November, 2020. Registrations are essential.

The AGM will also launch the CHF’s Consumer Commissions’ report on the lessons for consumers from the COVID experience. For people involved in health delivery and policy, it has become commonplace to hear that COVID has generated the impetus and necessity for change in health care, the expansion of telehealth being a prime example of this shift in gears.

But that should be just the start of COVID-induced initiatives in health. Societal dynamics right now mean Australia has a rare opportunity to continue with reforms that are practical and feasible, but which have been blocked by institutional inertia previously. With the Federal Government next year expected to announce significant changes in primary and preventive health, we need to ensure that our considered thinking holds an important place in new policy directions.

CHF also have nominations for position open on the CHF board.
