Health Minister Greg Hunt will announce on 14 August details of the Intergenerational Health and Mental Health Study, which is expected to cost $90 million and take three years to complete. It will comprise four surveys that will be overseen by the Australian Bureau of Statistics, with the first being a mental health and wellbeing survey. It will be followed by a National Health Study, while there will also be a National Nutrition and Physical Activity Study and a National Health Measures Study. The surveys are being undertaken because of concerns that policy and reforms are being based on out-of-date information.
