A new Working Together agreement between CHF and NPS MedicineWise

An agreement: Working Together: A Partnership between NPS MedicineWise and the Consumers Health Forum of Australia was signed in May 2020, setting out how we will partner and build on our collaboration over the past 20 years to ensure consumers are at the centre of quality use of medicines and better health decision-making.

Working Together: A Partnership between NPS MedicineWise and the Consumers Health Forum of Australia

 

The Consumers Health Forum of Australia (CHF) is Australia’s national peak body for health care consumers and leading advocate on consumer health care issues, working to achieve safe, good quality, timely healthcare for all Australians, supported by the best health information and systems the country can afford.

Independent, not-for-profit and evidence-based, NPS MedicineWise is a national implementation body that enables better decisions about medicines, medical tests and other health technologies.

Together, both organisations are committed to achieving better health outcomes for all Australians and working with consumers to determine the best ways to achieve those outcomes. Specifically, together we are committed to working together to realise the goals and objectives of the National Medicines Policy and the National Strategy for Quality Use of Medicines.
