We are a not-for-profit, social purpose development and support organisation – making primary healthcare* better for all.

Our mission is to improve the health and wellbeing of defined populations locally, nationally and internationally.

Our faculty of 50+ experts can inspire and energise teams, organisations and systems to create real and sustainable transformation. We do this through:

* Our work is underpinned by the WHO definition of Primary Healthcare

Meeting people’s health needs through comprehensive promotive, protective, preventive, curative, rehabilitative, and palliative care throughout the life course, strategically prioritizing key health care services aimed at individuals and families through primary care and the population through public health functions as the central elements of integrated health services

Systematically addressing the broader determinants of health (including social, economic, environmental, as well as people’s characteristics and behaviours) through evidence-informed public policies and actions across all sectors

Empowering individuals, families, and communities to optimize their health, as advocates for policies that promote and protect health and well-being, as co-developers of health and social services, and as self-carers and care-givers to others.
