Independent Review into Australia's
Response to COVID-19

Fault Lines, an independant review into Australia’s response to COVID-19 was released on 20 October 2022. This report was funded by the John and Myriam Wylie Foundation , the Paul Ramsay Foundation and the Minderoo Foundation. 

The report found that Australia’s Covid-19 response was inedaquate as it failed to assist the vulnerable population and adress the effetcs of lockdown and its impact on education.

The findings in the review will have a positive impact on future public debate and recommendations regarding health crises which demonstrates that philanthropy plays a key role in education and democratic governance.

The independent review was chaired by Peter Shergold AC, with a panel comprising Jillian Broadbent AC, Isobel Marshall and Peter Varghese AO. The e61 Institute supported the panel through providing substantial research, data analysis, policy analysis and leading an extensive consultation process.
