Last updated:

The Health Providers' Partnership Forum (HPPF) meets regularly to discuss health matters relating to veterans. The forum allows us to collaborate and work with peak bodies from the health sector.

What the forum does

The HPPF provides peak bodies with access to relevant DVA program managers.

The forum ensures that we have access to expert advice and evidence-based research.

Using the advice, research and our own strategic priorities, we develop:

  • veteran health policy
  • service delivery arrangements

Forum agendas draw on:

  • health sector input
  • discussions with DVA business areas
  • findings from other groups

We continue to meet with professional associations outside the formal forum meetings.

Who is on the forum

Meeting attendees can include:

  • standing members from DVA and the ex-service community
  • interested health organisations and associations

A representative from the National Consultation Framework forum provides the ex-service organisation's (ESOs) and veterans' perspective.

We invite peak body associations on our health sector database.

To find out if your association participates please contact the secretariat.

If the chair cannot attend a meeting then the deputy chair will run it.

The forum is a consultative group and decides issues by consensus. If this is not possible, the chair decides.

The forum meets 3 or 4 times a year. The chair may schedule extra meetings if they are necessary.
