Abstract: Australians will gleefully show you a postcard proving that their national boundaries encompass the whole of western Europe when the two are superposed. Yet the complaint “But we are a small country” is heard frequently. Both are true: a vast country but with a population of only 19 million. This western democracy, with waning European ties, is set geographically and economically in the Asia-Pacific region. Distinguished in her contributions to medical research and innovative in her medical education Australia offers excellent health care. Australians are as frank about the problems as they are generous with their time (and hospitality) in showing the visitor the many strengths. This the last of The Lancet’s “Country profiles” tries to capture those strengths and weaknesses, via 14 people. That list leaves unacknowledged many others who helped shape the project. Most notable of these is Prof Roger V Short, in Melbourne.
