Public Health Association criticise federal government’s $7 GP co-payment

The Public Health Association of Australia has disagreed with where the federal government’s $7 GP co-payment is going, saying the proposed medical research fund does not address leading issues like obesity, tobacco, and alcohol.

CEO of the Association, Michael Moore, says the medical research fund is undermining the universal health system which Australia has adopted so well.

Further, The Association has announced its support for the ‘No GP Tax in our name’ campaign which calls on concerned health professionals and Australians alike to take a stand against the new GP Tax.
