The aim of NSW Health is to provide the people of NSW with the best possible health care that not only meets today’s health needs but also responds to the health needs of the future. The scope of work undertaken across the state ranges from acute hospital care to policy development, health promotion and community health initiatives.

NSW Health seeks sponsorship opportunities that send pro-active health messages to the people of NSW. All sponsorship requests are subject to a stringent approval process, ongoing management and extensive evaluation to ensure communication opportunities are maximised.

NSW Health may consider sponsorship proposals that are consistent with the Ministry of Health's strategic priorities . The overarching key directions are:

  • keeping people healthy and out of hospital
  • providing world-class clinical care
  • delivering truly integrated care

Sponsorship proposals must also be in line with NSW Health's values of collaboration, openness, respect and empowerment.


There are two types of sponsorship at NSW Health: 

  1. Outgoing sponsorship
    Outgoing sponsorship is any contribution that NSW Health provides to a private sector or community organisation to support an event, initiative or activity. NSW Health will assess requests on the ability to provide tangible evidence that improved health outcomes for particular target audiences will result. The decision to sponsor involves the agreement of NSW Health to be publicly associated with a particular event, forum or activity and as such the decision to sponsor is not made lightly.
  2. Incoming sponsorship
    Incoming sponsorship is any monetary or in-kind contribution received from a private sector organisation  in support of a NSW Health service, facility, activity or event in return for some form of public acknowledgement.
    NSW Health will not consider any submissions from companies that are involved with the manufacture and production of tobacco and alcohol related products, or other products and services that could damage health, or conflict with the priorities of NSW Health.
