The Australian Patient Advoacy Alliance (APPA), is an alliance of Australian consumer health groups – collaboratively representing the voices of over 15 million Australians living with chronic conditions – to pursue policy change.
Together, we are speaking with one voice on systemic solutions to improve access, break down barriers, and drive innovation that improves health outcomes for Australians.
Our shared ambition is to improve the health and wellbeing of all Australians through a health system that puts the consumer at its heart; one that draws on the experience of Australians living with health conditions and embeds consumers at every step of the policy making process.
What the Australian Patient Advocacy Alliance stands for
  • A consumer-centric healthcare system that delivers timely and equitable access to the best treatment, care and support.
  • Health policies that are co-designed with consumers involved at every step of the health policy development process.
  • Systemic reforms of health policies affecting all Australians with chronic conditions.
