The Australian Health Design Council is a not-for-profit, non-government organisation established in 2011 that provides a forum for all professionals involved in the Australian health design sector to share knowledge, develop expertise, foster research and enhance skills in health facility planning, design and management across both the private and public sectors. Our key objectives are to establish and promote a shared vision for high quality, efficient and effective health facility design that responds to the needs of the Australian populace.
AHDC brings together healthcare professionals, designers, and researchers from different disciplines to promote collaboration and exchange of ideas. Our activities include hosting conferences and workshops, conducting research projects, and advocating for the use of design thinking in healthcare policy and practice.
AHDC is in close collaboration with health facility design and construction technology groups across Australia and New Zealand and actively seeks membership from all stakeholders. Members of AHDC have to opportunity to shape our industry and contribute to improving the quality and sustainability of health facility design.
