Health priorities

We operate across the state, improving access to health care, helping those most at risk of poor health outcomes to be cared for closer to home.

Together with our partners, WA Primary Health Alliance is working to shape, strengthen and sustain a health system that works for people by identifying and addressing gaps and tackling inequity. In doing this, we are focusing on the below priority areas, as guided by the Australian Government. 

These priorities address the unacceptable difference in the health status of Western Australians. Aboriginal people, multicultural communities, LGBTIQA+ communities, people experiencing socioeconomic disadvantage, and those with limited access to health care may experience poorer health outcomes and mortality rates than the rest of the WA population. Our work is designed to address those gaps and support better health for all.
