Health & Human Services 

The effective and efficient delivery of health, ageing and human services poses a major challenge for governments, with the formulation of relevant policies and strategies equally daunting. These challenges extend beyond government to include not-for-profit and private sector service providers.

Healthcare Global Centre of Excellence

KPMG’s Global Centre of Excellence for Healthcare works to design and implement creative and practical solutions for our clients that harness the latest in national, regional and global perspectives.

Human & Social Services Global Centre of Excellence

The Human & Social Services Global Centre of Excellence brings together subject matter experts and highly experienced professionals from around the world to share best practices, knowledge and experience in the sector.

Among those who rely on these services are the most vulnerable and disadvantaged members of society. At the same time, funding of health, ageing and human services accounts for a high and increasing proportion of government outlays. Obtaining value for the taxpayer and satisfying community expectations are vital considerations.


Good outcomes in these matters result from strong management capabilities, robust reporting frameworks, the imaginative deployment of infrastructure and technology, sound operating systems and advanced financial skills. High quality external advice can help build these capabilities.
