Inaugural Advocacy-Health Alliances Symposium – Public Event 15 Nov

Medical Legal Partnerships (MLP) are well developed in the US.  MLPs feature three core activities: providing legal assistance in the healthcare setting, transforming health and legal institutions and their practices, and influencing policy change.  In Australia, MLP is in its infancy.  However, there are examples of legal services provided in partnership with health services and an emerging interest in adopting and adapting the MLP model for the Australian context.

Proudly hosted by Baker & McKenzie, this event is for those who work or study in the health or legal fields, have an interest in this area, or would just like to know more. Come along to join the conversations on Advocacy Health Alliances in Australia.
