The Consumer and Community Advisory Group (CCAG) provides strategic advice to the National Health and Medical Research Council's (NHMRC) Chief Executive Officer on health matters and on health and medical research matters from a consumer and community perspective.

CCAG plays an important role in providing a health consumer and community perspective on a diverse range of NHMRC business, including advice on consumer involvement in health and medical research.

The advice of the CCAG complements the advice and expertise of consumer and community representatives on the NHMRC Council and its Principal Committees. For further information on how NHMRC supports consumer and community engagement, including access to resources, please visit the NHMRC website.
