The Hon Mark Butler MP, Minister for Health and Aged Care, has announced the updated National Medicines Policy (NMP). The refreshed NMP is available on the Department of Health and Aged Care’s website.
RVA is currently reviewing the refreshed NMP in detail and what it may mean for Australians living with a rare disease.

- Lodging a Submission to the initial consultation in October 2021
- Participating in a one-on-one interview as the national peak body with the NMP Review’s Expert Advisory Committee
- Submitting a response to the draft NMP in March 2022
