Creating and Sharing Knowledge about Healthcare Design

The Australian Health Design Council (AHDC) is committed to creating and sharing knowledge about the design of healthcare facilities with all who are interested in developing the best possible health buildings for the Australian community.

Sharing Knowledge from Research

Sharing evidence for health facility design with industry colleagues was one of the main reasons that the Australian Health Design Council (AHDC) was set up in 2012 by Jane Carthey and other colleagues.

We continue to pursue this through our website, seminars and other networking activities.

AHDC is supported by several industry sponsors. Please see our organisational website for further details.
