The TGA, as part of the Australian Government Department of Health, is responsible for enabling therapeutic goods available for supply in Australia to be safe and fit for their intended purpose. These include goods Australians rely on every day, such as analgesics and sunscreens, through to goods used to treat and prevent serious conditions, such as prescription medicines, vaccines, blood products and surgical implants.
The TGA Business Plan provides details on our key deliverables in relation to the regulation of therapeutic goods, and should be read in concert with our performance reporting.
The Department of Health and Aged Care acknowledges First Nations peoples as the Traditional Owners of Country throughout Australia, and their continuing connection to land, sea and community. We pay our respects to them and their cultures, and to all Elders both past and present.
