Aged Care Sector Committee – Aged Care Roadmap

The Aged Care Sector Committee (The Committee) provides advice to the Government on aged care policy development and implementation and helps to guide the future reform of the aged care system. The Committee also acts as the mechanism for consultation between the Australian Government and the aged care sector. The committee members consult broadly within their own memberships and constituencies to ensure that stakeholder views inform the policy development process.

In April 2015, the Aged Care Sector Committee was tasked by the former Assistant Minister for Social Services, Senator the Hon Mitch Fifield, to develop a roadmap to advise on future directions for aged care.

Media Release: New four-strain flu vaccine available from this month

Media Release: 08 April 2016

A new four-strain flu vaccine, protecting against the nasty Brisbane virus, is being made available for at-risk Australians for free from this month by the Turnbull Government, to help them build up their immunity in time for the peak flu season due in August 2016.

Minister for Health Sussan Ley today announced the Federal Government had already begun rolling out the new 2016 vaccine, with $31.3 million made available for up to 4.48 million free doses of the new flu booster.

Ms Ley said the Turnbull Government had moved quickly to upgrade Australia’s flu vaccine stocks from three strains to four, after the arrival of the Brisbane flu strain last year led to 2015 being recorded as the worst flu season in years.
