HEAL Foundation – Supporting Healthcare Education

2015 saw the formation of the HEAL Foundation (the Foundation). The purpose of the Foundation is to provide a vehicle to channel charitable activities and formally endorse a culture of fostering programs that support healthcare education.

The work undertaken by the Foundation aligns with the HEAL Vision and Purpose and with the Foundation's Scope of Activity:

  • National programs that have a social impact in healthcare (for healthcare professionals, communities, families or individuals), and that:
    • provide healthcare education as its central role;
    • provide transformative healthcare education; or
    • provide healthcare knowledge and skills to health professionals.
  • International programs to foster global citizenship, that:
    • provide healthcare education as its central role;
    • provide transformative healthcare education;
    • explore different cultures, languages and economies with respect to healthcare; or
    • provide healthcare knowledge and skills to societies in need.
  • Collaboration with other educational facilities and organisations
  • Financial support/scholarships for research projects to support individuals or organisations to deliver innovative health education programs
  • Seeking charitable donations
  • Development and delivery of charitable health education projects (either independently or in collaboration with other organisations)

The Foundation operates as a separate division within HEAL and has its own Terms of Reference.

Successful recipients of HEAL Foundation grants include Friends 4 Fiji, Global Ideas and patient safety initiatives through the Australasian Institute of Clinical Governance (AICG). The HEAL Foundation also facilitated funding to several eligible practices within the Central Highlands General Practice Network in Victoria.
