Welcome to IFIC Australia

Welcome to IFIC Australia

IFIC Australia seeks to develop an independent and inclusive network to inspire, influence, facilitate and adopt integrated care in policy and practice across Australia and the Asia-Pacific region. Founded in 2015, it provides a platform to develop and exchange ideas and promote activities in the Region in keeping with IFIC’s mission

Since June 2022, the leadership for IFIC Australia sits with the following coordinating institutions:

  • the International Foundation for Integrated Care (IFIC);
  • University of Sydney;
  • Sydney Local Health District; and
  • the Central Coast Research Institute for Integrated Care (CCRI), a joint venture of the University of Newcastle and the Central Coast Local Health District.

IFIC Australia is being supported in its development through funding provided by the NHMRC Centre for Research Excellence on Health and Social Care Integration (CREHSCI), led by the University of Sydney. This support funding will run to mid-2025, where IFIC Australia will then seek to be self-sustaining through developing a network of partners and sponsors.

IFIC Australia’s s governance includes an Executive Committee, comprising representatives from the coordinating institutions, to oversee the activities of IFIC Australia. A Partnership Committee, currently led by Greg Stewart as its independent Chair, is responsible for developing an annual program of work, facilitating its national and international network of partners, and developing a pathway for its future growth.

IFIC Australia’s activities are supported by a combined team from CCRI and IFIC
