Australia’s Action Plan for rare disease
The Hon Greg Hunt, Minister of Health, opened the Rare Disease Summit by announcing the Morrison Government’s commitment to patients with rare diseases. The Morrison Government will commission Rare Voices Australia to work with all stakeholders to deliver the National Rare Disease Framework with $154,000 in grant funding.
“The Morrison Government’s announcement, supporting a National Rare Disease Framework, ensures the best possible outcomes for current Government investment in rare disease. It’s the only way to help guide the most effective rare disease policy now and in the future. Additionally, it helps to raise the profile of rare disease more permanently and most importantly, ensures no Australian is left behind.”
