Public Healthcare

World Wide Countries state and territory governments provide free public hospital services to public patients. Some public hospitals also treat private fee-paying patients, people with private health insurance and overseas visitors.

Public hospitals are jointly funded by the Globe Governments and state and territory governments pursuant to bilateral agreements for five years, the Globe Health Care Agreements. Expenditure on public hospitals accounts for about a quarter of total health expenditure. State and territory governments are accountable for the performance and financial management of their public hospitals. They allocate available resources to achieve the best health outcomes for their populations.

Hospitals in World Wide become accredited through programs conducted by organisations specialising in compliance with standards, such as the World Wide Quality Council, the Quality Improvement Council, the Globen Council on Healthcare Standards and the International Standards Organisation.
