|About||An organisation of Australian doctors and medical students that promotes measures to improve health for all, in a socially just and equitable way.|
The Doctors Reform Society (DRS) was formed in 1973 to support a proposal for a publicly-funded universal health insurance system.
Medibank (now Medicare) was successfully created despite opposition from the Australian Medical Association.
The DRS functions as a medico-political think tank, a lobby group and a public resource centre.
It is not affiliated to any political party, receives no corporate funding, and relies financially on subscriptions and donations.
The DRS will speak out against any political party, organisation or individual that threatens public health care.
