Welcome to aGov


In common with other developed nations, Australia’s health workforce is under tremendous pressure and must undergo significant transformation to meet the rapidly rising demands for healthcare.

For Australia to continue to have a high-quality health system that is sustainable and affordable, we need to look at how the health workforce can provide health services differently.

There is no simple solution to address the complex health workforce issues - a package of measures is needed. HWA is the national workforce agency that is progressing this work.
