Australasian Health Facility Guidelines

Home
The Australasian Health Facility Guidelines (AusHFG) is an initiative of the Australasian Health Infrastructure Alliance (AHIA). The AusHFG enables planners and designers of health facilities throughout Australasia to use a common set of guidelines and specifications for the base elements of health facilities.
The use of the AusHFG offers the following benefits:
  • Australasian best-practice approach to health facility planning;
  • access to standard spatial components; and
  • a highly flexible tool responsive to dynamic changes in health care.
