Congratulating the Hon Greg Hunt MP

The Sleep Health Foundation and the Australasian Sleep Association congratulate the Hon Greg Hunt MP on his re-appointment as Federal Minister for Health in the new Federal Cabinet.

Good sleep is critical for alertness, good health, productivity, ell-being and quality of life. Sleep disorders are an under-recognised problem in Australia. We look forward to working with him to promote improved sleep health for all Australians and create policies to help raise awareness of the importance of sleep health to general wellbeing, including the impact of impaired alertness and sleep loss on workplace safety and productivity and road safety.

We are pleased that a Minister, who is so insightful about sleep health, remains in the portfolio and that we look forward to his continuing encouragement and support.
