CoAG reform « Previous | |Next »
April 14, 2007

So CoAG failed to deliver anything on substance on the national reform agenda proposed by the Brack's Government and signed on in July 2006. Some progress was made on health. There was national registration and accreditation and the first step was taken in switching the emphasis of health spending towards more prevention and ongoing treatment of chronic illnesses (eg., obesity) to ensure that that less costly crisis intervention is needed latter.

There was no movement on human capital issues (such as skills and health), no incentives to encourage the states to launch a third wave of reform as happened under national competition policy, no across the board funding agreement, little movement on energy or infrastructure.
