The Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW) will present a two-day conference in June at Parliament House, Canberra. This conference will focus on the key health issues facing Australia and the world today. It will bring together professionals working in health policy and administration, and health service delivery, as well as researchers and other interested stakeholders.

This conference is the perfect forum to meet with subject specialists from AIHW and other agencies and jurisdictions. You will hear international and national health experts discuss critical issues, and put forward views for the future of Australia's health.

The two-day program will commence with the launch of Australia's Health 2004 by the Minister for Health and Ageing, the Hon. Tony Abbott, MP. This publication is the most comprehensive and authoritative source of health statistics and related information. All delegates will receive a free copy of Australia's Health 2004.

The conference program will include keynote addresses by international and Australian experts. Workshop sessions will be held on the critical areas of National Health Priorities, Population Health, Health Labour Force and Health Expenditure.
