We're pleased to announce that in Sydney, we will be joined by several keynote speakers to open and close the symposium.

We will be welcomed to the country by Millie Ingram, a highly respected Elder who has spent most of her life working life fighting for Aboriginal rights at community level, in childcare, employment and education. She currently serves as CEO of Wyanga Aboriginal Aged Care Organisation and will discuss her experience of the challenges in ensuring that an NGO addresses needs and does not substitute for government.

In the morning, Bruce Bonyhady will focus on lessons learned in strengthening the Australian health sector. He will address the capacity of non-state organisations to provide effective and affordable services to people with low incomes, the future sources of finance for moving towards universal coverage, and the evolving relationship between government and the non-state sector.

In the afternoon, Mushtaque Chowdhury will take a more international consideration of the evolving role of mixed health systems, pulling on his experience with BRAC, the world's largest NGO, and the Rockefeller Foundation.
