The Public Health Association is Australia’s peak body for public health. We advocate for the health and well-being of all Australians.
We lead the conversation in public health policy across Australia. Our campaigns cover a wide range of public health issues including Indigenous health, alcohol pregnancy warning labels, and sick leave for all workers. Our campaigns are based on evidence-based policy statements which are developed collaboratively with our members, branches and Special Interest Groups.
Our 1700 individual members represent over 40 professional groups interested in the promotion of public health. We have branches in every State and Territory. The branches work with the National Office to provide policy advice, organise events and mentor young public health professionals. We also have eighteen Special Interest Groups which focus on developing policy on a wide range of public health issues.
We are a lead provider of public health professional development, and host several major national and international conferences every year.
We publish the Australian and New Zealand Journal of Public Health which is a peer reviewed, multidisciplinary, open access journal.
