The APA is the voice of and for Australian patients. Hearing the patients voice and their lived experience is vital to our success. This valuable input drives the campaigns and lobbying which the APA undertakes on behalf of Australian patients.

We canvas the concerns and needs of Australian patients via our “Have Your Say” survey. To tell us your experience and what matters to you visit Have Your Say

The APA advocates for Australian patients with the aim of improvement and change of the Australian healthcare system. We fight for your patient rights. Our advocacy activities include media activities, lobbying and submissions to organisation, peak bodies, commissions, policy makers and government.

Volunteers are always sought to contribute to the important work of the Australian Patient Association. Volunteers are invited and encouraged to contribute in their area of personal expertise and interest. If you wish to learn more about volunteering visit our Volunteer page.
