This paper sets out the respective responsibilities of the Commonwealth and state governments for health care, identifying those areas where cost-shifting and duplication exist. It discusses some of the major issues in the health debate, with a view to identifying the extent to which they are connected to the federal division of responsibilities. In this context, the major research findings and recommendations for reform of the health system are considered.
