Delivering a Healthy WA
Australian Better Health Initiative (ABHI)
A joint Australian, State and Territory government initiative

The Australian Better Health Initiative (ABHI) was launched by the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) in July 2006. The Australian Government will contribute $250m nationally over four years and the WA Government will contribute $25M for state-based activities.

The aim of ABHI is to refocus the health system to promote good health and reduce the burden of chronic disease. The initiative will support activities to improve health outcomes along the care continuum, from the well population to those with advanced chronic conditions.

The initiative consists of eleven components across five priority areas for action.
