Role Title: Project Officer - Public Health Act
Organisation: Health Consumers Council
Internship Period: Winter (June - July)
Location: East Perth
As a consumer rights organisation focused on health rights we are wanting to expand our internal knowledge of the Public Health Act and its impact on consumers so we are better able to support them if they come into contact with this Act. There is little to no consumer information on the Public Health Act, which we recognise is a large gap in existing consumer rights information. The Intern would be working to expand the knowledge and resource base of the Public Health Act as part of the engagement team and under the direct supervision of the Aboriginal Engagement Coordinator.
Health Consumers’ Council (WA) Inc, (HCC) is an independent, not for profit organisation passionate about ensuring the consumer is at the heart of our state’s health care system. Our purpose is to increase the capacity of all people to influence the future direction of health care and to make informed choices.
