WAPHA has commenced development of a range of papers to communicate our position on, and responses to, a range of key primary health issues.
These position papers focus on the six key priority areas for Primary Health Networks (PHNs), as identified by the Commonwealth Government.
All papers are reviewed regularly and are based on the current research and policies available.
