by John Daley


Grattan Institute was pleased to announce today that Medibank Private has become its newest affiliate partner.

As part of a three-year arrangement, Medibank will provide funding to support Grattan’s research aimed at improving the lives of all Australians through better public policy.

Medibank Managing Director Mr George Savvides said that he was pleased to be supporting Grattan’s efforts to tackle Australia’s most pressing policy issues, including how to sustain Australia’s world-class health system.

“Medibank is committed to improving the transparency, affordability and value of Australia’s healthcare system, and we believe a key part of this is supporting evidence-based research undertaken by organisations such as Grattan.

“The Grattan team has a great track record of producing influential research and analysis that provides clear direction for where our nation needs to head, including addressing the challenges facing our health system.”

Grattan CEO John Daley said the partnership reflects the two organisation’s shared commitment to rigorous and independent policy development that has long-term benefits for all Australians.

“We are grateful for Medibank’s support and look forward to sharing the insights from our research with Medibank and the community,” Mr Daley said.
