AMA submission to the Inquiry on section 100 pharmaceutical arrangements for Indigenous Australians - 2011

23 Aug 2011

Aboriginal peoples and Torres Strait Islanders across Australia experience a range of barriers in accessing affordable medications and appropriate primary health care. Special arrangements under section 100 of the National Health Act 1953 have been effective in improving that access. However, gaps remain in medications access. This submission makes recommendations about measures the AMA believes will fill those gaps.
