Linda Kurti is one of Australia’s leading organisational development and research specialists.

She has advanced degrees from universities in the UK, US and Australia, and as leader of the health portfolio within our Economic and Social Advisory practice, she has conducted research projects that have influenced government decision-making at all levels. Linda is interested in health equity and access, global health and international models of health care delivery. In Britain, she contributed to essential health system reforms in primary health care. In Australia, she has served as executive director of an international development agency, led strategic development initiatives for the former General Practice Divisions, and conducted health research at two universities.

Linda is passionate about working with clients to improve systems and processes, for instance: evaluating the innovative Physician’s Assistant Pilot for Queensland Health and the Keep Them Safe Whole-Family Teams Pilot for NSW Health, and conducting strategic reviews such as the evaluation of the National Palliative Care Strategy 2010.

Health and social services support people to live full and healthy lives, which in turn, strengthen our society. Our ESA team provides the evidence and strategic advice to ensure services can do their best for all Australians.
