Convivial for Health

An advanced starting point for GovCMS8 websites which are based on the Department of Health Design System.

Convivial for Health is a Drupal 9 distribution, based on top of GovCMS, the Australian Government Design System and the Department of Health Design System. It contains all of the standard features of GovCMS with the addition of a number of extensions leading to quick project spin up and enhanced editor experience.

This codebase is no longer in active development due to the development of the Health Starter Kit developed by the Department of Health.


Convivial contains many best practice features which are very useful on typical GovCMS sites. The following demo pages illustrate what it is capable of. Everything you see on the pages below has been achieved by an editor working in the node edit screen. No themers or developers were required to build these pages.
