This is where people count - starting with one... We sometimes say consumers, but what we really mean is everyday people. Health Issues Centre exists to serve everyday people by ensuring their voices are heard.

We then convert this into usable data that the health sector, researchers and policy-makers can use to inform a better health system for everyone. Find out more by watching this video.
