Welcome to the Australian Patient Advocacy Alliance


We work alongside national peak advocacy organisations to achieve reforms in the Australian healthcare system. We provide a coordinated and cohesive approach to government on behalf of our members and the patients they represent.

We drive efficient and effective communication between member organisations and the federal government, allowing patient voices to make a meaningful impact on health strategy and decision making.

Enhancing healthcare for all Australians

APAA Membership

It’s no secret that healthcare systems can be difficult to navigate, and even more so for people with complex care needs. That’s why we work above the disease, advocating on behalf of all national peak patient bodies to better serve the millions of patients across Australia who live with chronic and complex conditions.
