The Hippocratic Oath, Hippocrates (460 BC – 370 BC)

The health of a nation is one of the most critical elements that determine its wellbeing and prosperity, and Australia’s healthcare industry is booming. Over the last decade, it has grown to become the nation’s largest employer category, supporting 1.5million Australians and representing over $130 billion in annual health expenditure.

This month, Insight is examining three global health epidemics: neglected and infectious diseases, HIV Aids, and mental health. Joining us are three panelists actively involved in the prevention and the cure of these public health threats:

  • Dr. Nick Chapman, Executive Director of Policy Cures Research, holds a Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Medical Science and a Masters Degree in Human Rights. His extensive academic and practical experience position him as the countries “new voices” in international health policy.
  • Dr. Fraser Drummond, Country Medical Director of ViiV Healthcare Australasia and Fellow of the Australasian Chapter of Sexual Health Medicine, travels nationally and internationally setting up clinics to deliver advances in treatment and care for people living with HIV.
  • Sam Makhoul is a solicitor and founder of MSA National, one of Australia’s leading mortgage settlement law firms. He directly attributes his commercial success to his personal emphasis on wellness in the workplace and creating a culture of care. He is a keynote speaker on the importance of mental, emotional, spiritual and relational health for a successful life.
