The Divisions Network today consists of 111 Divisions, six State Based Organisations (SBOs), two hybrid SBO-Divisions (ACT and NT) and the Australian General Practice Network (AGPN), having evolved from the ten demonstration Divisions funded by the Australian Government Department of Health and Ageing in 1992. The broad aim of the Divisions of General Practice Program is to improve health service delivery to local communities, through local Divisions, SBOs operating at state and territory level and the national peak representative body, AGPN. The members of the Network function independently but are united in the objective of strengthening the primary health care capacity of Australian general practice. To ensure Divisions are accountable for their funding, each year all Divisions have been required to complete the Annual Survey of Divisions (ASD), one of two formal National Quality and Performance System (NQPS) contractual reporting requirements (the other being the 6 and 12 month reports). PHCRIS commenced managing and reporting on this survey in 1997-98 and this 2007-08 report is the 14th in the series.
