Catholic Health head honoured

Catholic Health Australia head Francis Sullivan has been honoured with two high profile pontifical appointments.

He is now Consultor to the Pontifical Council for Health Care, an advisory role on issues central to the international Catholic health and aged care ministry.

"I'm honoured to be picked as consultor and hope I can justify the appointment," Mr Sullivan told The Catholic Weekly.

He has also been appointed as Oceania representative on the interim board of the International Association of Catholic Health Associations.

The Board has been established by the Pontifical Council to enable better support and cooperation between Catholic health bodies. It aims to promote the healing ministry and provide advice to the Pontifical Council on matters ranging from policy through to service delivery.

He said Catholic Health Australia, as one of the most established and sophisticated Catholic Health groups in the world, had much to offer, particularly because Catholic Health works in a public health system.
