Australia has one of the most affordable, accessible and comprehensive healthcare systems in the world. The Commonwealth Department of Health and Ageing promotes good health and ensure all Australians have access to key health and family services including:
- aged and community care services
- family and children's services
- disability programmes
- public health initiatives
- medicare and pharmaceutical benefits
- hospital and healthcare funding
- health services for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders
- emergency services for people in crisis.
The Commonwealth has developed a broad policy of leadership and financing in health matters and focuses on the areas of public health, research and national information management while the states and territories are largely responsible for the delivery of public sector health services and the regulation of health workers in the public and private sectors.
Funding the system:
Funding of the health system in Australia is a combination of government funding and private health insurance. Government funding is through the Medicare scheme, which subsidizes out-of-hospital medical treatment and funds free universal access to hospital treatment. Medicare is funded by a 2% tax levy on taxpayers with incomes above a threshold amount, with an extra 1% levy on high-income earners without private health insurance, and the balance being provided by the government from general revenue.. Healthcare is only 9% of Australia's GDP.
