About

The Public Health Association is Australia’s peak body for public health. We advocate for the health and well-being of all Australians. Our members represent over 40 professional groups interested in the promotion of public health.

PHAA’s Intouch Public Health blog is a unique platform for members and the Association to showcase research and advocacy work, inform public debate, share expert opinion and communicate more broadly.

All posts are free to read, and we encourage the republishing of our stories. Please link articles to PHAA Intouch Public Health, using the words “First published in PHAA Intouch Public Health (hyperlink to the story).”

Our Association is headed by Terry Slevin, our CEO. The blog is edited by the PHAA team.

We pay our respects to Traditional Owners of lands where our members and editors work. We particularly acknowledge the Ngunnawal Peoples on whose lands our Canberra National Office is located.
