From 1 July 2010, the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) is required by the Right to Information Act 2009 (the Act) to make information available to the public through proactive disclosure. This means we are required to routinely make information available that will assist the public in understanding what it is we do and how we do it.
Information may be released via our website or through publications and reports (eg fact sheets, discussion papers or our annual report).
Some information is not released in this way, because it is not of general public interest or because it is information that DHHS would need to assess against the exemptions in the Act prior to disclosure.
If you cannot find the information via one of the means below, contact DHHS and we may be able to assist you in finding the information, or we may be able to provide it to you outside of the Act. If it is not freely available, then we can assist you in making an application for assessed disclosure under the Act.
