Working with partner organisations across western Victoria, Western Alliance aims to deliver improved regional health outcomes of national significance.

Western Alliance provides financial and in-kind support for start-up health and medical research, research training opportunities, meetings and discussion forums for health professionals and academic researchers who wish to collaborate.

Our major event is the Annual Symposium, which encourages health professionals, researchers, educators, policy makers and community representatives to share and discuss successes and advances in improving regional health outcomes, particularly in western Victoria.
