Following the 2022 Federal Election outcome an interim Ministry has now been sworn in and the caretaker period has ceased. Further updates to this website will be made in due course.


Jurisdictional Blood Committee

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 Ministers through the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) Health Council (formerly the Standing Council on Health (SCoH)), and settling less significant issues as authorised by the Council. Advice and support to the COAG Health Council is provided through the Hospitals Principal Committee and the Australian Health Ministers' Advisory Council. 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.
