Patient care and public health are high priorities for the Australian Medical Association (WA), which campaigns tirelessly for the rights of patients, better public health services, guaranteed freedom of choice in the private system and the right to retain access to Australia’s high standards of medicine.
Recognising a gap in programs designed to specifically address the needs of youth in Western Australia, the AMA (WA) Foundation was established in 1996, and subsequently developed two innovative and award-winning initiatives – Dr YES (Youth Education Sessions) and the Youth Friendly Doctor training program. Both tackle a range of health issues that affect young Western Australians, including sexual health, mental health, and alcohol and other drugs.
The AMA (WA) Foundation continues to exist as a not-for-profit organisation through donations, external funding and the support of the AMA (WA). If you would like to be involved in the Foundation’s efforts by making a donation to the youth program, please complete the online donation form. If you would like to discuss current or future donations that will help achieve your financial and estate plans, please contact Simone Wilson at the AMA (WA) on (08) 9273 3000 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
