Health is about how our body works, and who helps us if we have injuries or illnesses.

The health system includes:

  • government health departments
  • hospitals and community health care centres
  • doctors and health care professionals, such as general practitioners and paediatricians
  • medicines and treatments, for example through Medicare.

We have separate information about mental health and psychosocial disability in the next section.

We also have a guideline on disability-related health supports.
