All Primary Health Networks (PHNs) are funded by the Australian Government to respond directly to national health priorities.
Commissioned services are guided by national policy across targeted health priority areas including Mental Health, Chronic Disease, After Hours Primary Health Care, Addictions, Child and Maternal Health, Health Intelligence, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health, Aged Care and Provider capability development.
As commissioners, PHNs are expected to understand the health care needs of their communities through health needs analysis and annual planning and to procure services from local providers through a regional commissioning approach.
