QGHA Mission and Objectives

QGHA aims to accelerate the adoption of genomic medicine into mainstream or ‘everyday’ healthcare to benefit all Queenslanders. Through QGHA, Queensland’s healthcare system will be better prepared to utilise the benefits presented by genomic medicine and, more broadly, precision medicine.
