Public Health Association of Australia (PHAA)



The Public Health Association of Australia (PHAA) is a non-government organisation for public health in Australia and works to promote the health and wellbeing of all Australians. PHAA seeks to improve population health outcomes based on prevention, social determinants of health and equity principles.

PHAA has branches in every state and territory and a wide range of special interest groups, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health. The branches work with the national office in providing policy advice, in organising seminars and public events and in mentoring public health professionals.

PHAA has a national and multidisciplinary perspective on public health issues and its aims to make a major contribution to the public health debate in Australia through representation on government boards, committees and other decision-making bodies, such as the National Health and Medical Research Council and the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare.
