This paper provides evidence on the economic and social returns of investing in the health and disability workforce to provide a basis for health and financial decision makers to work together around shared goals and public finance objectives. The intent is to enable a stronger dialogue with the Minister of Finance and Treasury about the contribution made by health systems to reducing social and economic exclusion and to growing the economy.
