The 5th International Health Care Reform Conference will again bring together health care organisations, policy makers, consumers, researchers and clinicians from Australia, New Zealand, Europe, the Asia Pacific and North America, to continue the reform platform for health care globally, and to further develop our international network for future growth. 

The conference committee is delighted that the 2020 conference will be held in Sydney. Sydney, Australia is amongst the world's most desirable destinations, with a beautiful climate offering visitors a range of experiences. Sydney Harbour is a natural playground, and the views are world-class. There's a wide-ranging cultural life, a dynamic food scene and vibrant cityscape of outstanding contemporary and colonial architecture. Iconic beaches and five major national parks deliver unforgettable outdoor experiences.

In a dynamic health environment, our key conference themes will focus on international innovation, service integration, digital health, capacity building, consumer engagement, value-based health care, change management & policy enablers. 

I look forward to seeing you in Sydney in March 2020.
