Program funding

Animal Health Australia works with its Members to maintain and improve Australia’s favourable animal health status, to ensure the viability of Australia’s livestock and aquatic industries.

AHA’s 32 Members fund the company’s activities through annual subscriptions calculated on a formula using the gross value of production (GVP) of the industry or jurisdiction using a 3-year rolling average.

The tables below show projects that are funded by all Members (core funded) and projects that are only funded by the project’s beneficiaries (special funded).
