In the lead up to the Federal Election, the Centenary Institute fully supports the efforts of the Association of Australian Medical Research Institutes (AAMRI) in calling on all parties and candidates to show their commitment for Australia’s future health and wellbeing.
AAMRI has today released its 2019 Election Statement outlining key areas any future government must prioritise to give all Australians the best healthcare system in the future.
The key priorities of the Statement are;
- Stick to the 2018–19 Budget commitments and deliver a fully funded Medical Research Future Fund by 2020–21 so we can turn our amazing medical research discoveries into improved health outcomes more quickly and efficiently.
- Provide continued strong support for new discoveries through the National Health and Medical Research Council.
- Attract and retain our best medical researchers by developing sustainable and rewarding career pathways.
