Health panel lowers financial expectations

The panel charged with reviewing health and medical research for the government has downgraded its expectations for funding in its final report, according to an article in The Conversation.

The final version of the McKeon review was presented to the government on 28 February following a draft publication in October. No date has been given for its public release.

In the draft, the panel called for the government to invest $2 billion-$3bn in the field over the next 10 years. In its final report, the panel has suggested splitting government investment into two five-year periods, with spending ramped up in the second period, reports The Conversation.
