The purpose of this paper is to describe early developments in the Australian healthcare agenda stemming from a recent change in national government.


The approach is to give the perspectives of an interested observer and stakeholder.


Healthcare looms large in any democratic election agenda. Promises are made that possess international echoes. Delivery of health care reform in the first few months of the new Australian Labor [sic] Government comply with these suppositions. Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose=the more things change, the more they stay the same.


Health care changes in Australia are drawn to the attention of an international audience.
