Health Workforce Australia

Parent Portfolio: Health

Health Workforce Australia (HWA) has been established to address the challenges of providing a skilled, flexible and innovative health workforce that meets the needs of the Australian community.

HWA is a Commonwealth statutory authority and reports to the Australian Health Ministers' Conference (AHMC), which comprises the nine health ministers in each state, territory and the Commonwealth. It was set up by the Council of Australian Governments (COAG), which saw the need for a national, co-ordinated approach to workforce planning.
