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.
