This resource is a guide to help the health services industry respond effectively to the Modern Slavery Act 2018 (Cth). The Act requires certain large companies to report annually on their efforts to address risks of modern slavery in their global operations and supply chains.

The guide is the third in a suite of sector-specific guides prepared as part of a joint collaboration between the Australian Human Rights Commission and KPMG Australia.

The guide showcases examples of current practice from the sector and provides good practice guidance, including:

  • highlighting particular modern slavery risks prevalent in the health services sector, and their suppliers 
  • providing tips for the health services sector on leading practice and a rights-based approach to managing modern slavery risk 
  • fostering transparent modern slavery reporting for the benefit of business, government and the people at risk of harm.
