Deeble Institute for Health Policy Research


The Deeble Institute conducts high-quality, independent academic research on a wide range of health policy topics. By working with academic and health service partners, we ensure our research is both rigorous and relevant.

The Institute is an initiative of the Australian Healthcare and Hospitals Association (AHHA), the independent, national membership body and advocate for the Australian public and not-for-profit healthcare systems. Some of the Institute’s published research work is used by the AHHA to inform its policy and advocacy program.

The Deeble Institute was established in November 2011.
