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.
