Australian Medical Association (AMA)

 

Description

The Australian Medical Association (AMA) is an independent organisation which represents registered medical practitioners and medical students of Australia.

The AMA, as the peak health advocacy organisation, exists to promote and protect the professional interests of doctors and the health care needs of patients and communities. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health is an important area of AMA advocacy. The AMA produces an annual report card on a topic of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health, and has also developed a position statement on preventable chronic disease strategies in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
