The National Committee for Medicine and Public Health aims to foster health and medical sciences in Australia and to serve as a link between Australian and overseas medical scientists.
The committee's specific objective is to develop Academy submissions and responses to national/international policy debates on medical research and health policy issues. Issues of particular importance include funding, workforce and career development, equity issues, and research conduct and integrity.
The membership of this committee is currently being restructured (September 2014).
