The Australian Centre for Healthcare Governance is an initiative of the Victorian Healthcare Association, the peak body representing the Victorian public healthcare sector.

The ACHG was established in 2010 at the same time as the National Health and Hospitals Network Agreement signalled the transition to Local Hospital Networks and Medicare Locals in all states.

Federal health reform resulted in the creation of skills-based governing bodies around Australia that determine the service needs and priorities of the communities they serve. Through the ACHG, Victoria’s healthcare governance experience can be shared across Australia.


ACHG’s objective is to draw upon its research, intellectual property and expertise to assist directors of healthcare boards to fulfil their governance responsibilities.
