Health Industry Taskforce

Health Industry Taskforce

Victoria’s health industry is a highly diverse sector and major contributor to the state economy. It is Victoria’s largest employer and one of our fastest growing sectors.

The health industry employs more than 12 per cent of Victorians and contributes over $30 billion a year to the economy.

The Victorian Chamber’s Health Industry Taskforce report, Vital to Victoria, identifies six priority areas to give Victorian health businesses the best chance of future success:

  • Create a more collaborative and integrated health business environment and strengthen local innovation and commercialisation
  • Increase the industry’s flexibility in delivering health outcomes and improve access to wellbeing and preventative health options
  • Develop and retain a skilled workforce that is equipped to keep pace with changing consumer preferences and needs
  • Attract investment to improve digital infrastructure and boost manufacturing capacity and efficiency
  • Leverage Victoria’s health industry strengths and international networks to build new product and service opportunities in the global marketplace
  • Keep health industry costs low and grow business competitiveness.
