Implementation of voluntary assisted dying

With the passing of the Voluntary Assisted Dying Act 2021 (the Act), the Department of Health and Wellbeing is leading the introduction of a safe, accessible pathway for eligible South Australians with a terminal illness. 

Implementation is governed by a Voluntary Assisted Dying Implementation Taskforce that oversees delivery of nine workstreams, supported by working groups and a project implementation team.   

As of 31 January 2023, voluntary assisted dying will be a choice available to eligible South Australians at end of life.
