Ahead of the 2010 Federal Election, Catholic Health Australia outlined its election platform. On any given day, one in 10 Australians in a hospital or residential aged care bed is being cared for in a Catholic facility. One in three of all older Australians receiving Commonwealth funded community care is being cared for by a Catholic organisation. These services exist for all Australians, but particularly for those in socioeconomic disadvantage who, through no fault of their own, often miss out on quality health and aged care.
The Catholic Health Australia Stewardship Board invites all people or parties seeking election to the House of Representatives and Senate to consider adopting CHA's policy initiatives as their own.
