Industry Members

Cardiovascular pharmaceutical and device companies are major players in the global biotech sector and ACvA industry members pursue goals that include the translation of evidence-based diagnostics and therapeutics to Australia in order to improve health.

Industry members support the goals of the ACvA through their membership fees, enabling the development and roll out of projects related to the mission of the ACvA. Industry members also participate in industry round table meetings with ACvA members where a bipartisan approach to common goals for the Australian public, such as improved access to quality medicines may be discussed and progressed.
