The Public Health Association is Australia's peak body for public health.

We advocate for the health and wellbeing of everyone in Australia.

About Us

Our purpose is to ensure fewer people get sick. We do this by leading the conversation in public health policy across Australia. Our campaigns cover many 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.
