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