Western Alliance Academic Health Science Centre

Western Alliance is a collaborative of 11 member organisations located across the Barwon/Southwest and Grampians regions of western Victoria. Members include regional and sub-regional public health services and hospitals, the Western Victoria Primary Health Network and Deakin and Federation Universities. The two regions have a combined population of over 700,000 residents or approximately 44 per cent of rural/regional Victoria’s population.

Through a program of education, funding and advocacy, Western Alliance supports its members to improve the health of their communities through research-based and evidence-informed health care.

Western Alliance recognises the importance of demonstrating cultural humility and agility as an organisation, whereby it is responsive to the needs of the Communities it serves and privileges Aboriginal leadership, recognising Community strength and amplifying their voice, ensuring that its processes and language reflect a strengths-based approach.
