Jurisdictional Blood Committee

Health and Aged Care
The Jurisdictional Blood Committee (JBC) is responsible for all jurisdictional issues relating to the national blood supply, including planning, production, supply, and budgeting. It provides national policy leadership on these matters, advising Health and Aged Care Ministers through the Health Ministers' Meeting (HMM) formerly COAG and the Standing Council on Health (SCoH), and settling less significant issues as authorised by the Health Ministers. JBC is also responsible for considering advice from, and providing advice to, the National Blood Authority (NBA) on matters related to the national blood supply, overseeing the NBA's role in relation to contracts, and referring proposed changes to the national blood supply for evidence-based evaluation.
