Working for a healthier regional Australia
Western Alliance is an academic health science centre and network established in 2014 as a partnership between academic research institutions and the major health service providers across western Victoria.
The first Australian academic health science centre to focus on regional and rural/remote health outcomes, its vision is a healthier regional Australia and its mission is to improve the health and wellbeing of western Victorians through collaborative health and medical research, education and training.
At Western Alliance, we are what we do.
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.
