Health Promotion - Good health is good business

AHPA NT would like to acknowledge the Traditional Owners of land upon which we meet and work, and their continuing connection to land, sea, and community. We pay our respects to them and their cultures, and to their Elders, past, present and emerging.


Welcome to the NT Branch of the Australian Health Promotion Association (AHPA). At AHPA NT we are a smaller collective of volunteers who wish to contribute to the objectives of AHPA and support our local communities.
AHPA NT is your professional body when you work in the field of health promotion, and is a great place to network with other like-minded public health professionals. If you currently live in the NT, or are considering moving to the NT, we would love to hear from you! Get in touch with us today to become a member and be a part of something that promotes good health and good business.

Background

The NT Branch is the leading health promotion association in the NT, dedicated to advocacy in health, improving professional development, networking opportunities and communication between health promoters.

The NT Branch is committed to bringing health promotion professionals together through regular branch activities, events and group networking opportunities.

The NT Branch Executive meets on a monthly basis to progress the objectives of AHPA. Key priorities for the NT Branch include:

• Advocacy – We are committed to advocacy at the local, or territory level on a range of health and related social issues. AHPA NT is a member of NT Council for Social Service (NTCOSS) and Multicultural Council for NT (MCNT).
• Professional Development – We organise and collaborate with existing health professional bodies and support innovative ways to build capacity and the local workforce.
• Scholarships – We provide financial support for NT Branch Members to access and attend professional development opportunities intra- and inter-state.
• Communication – We co-facilitate ongoing networking opportunities for health promotion professionals in the NT.
• Mentoring – We encourage early-career health professionals to be engaged and assisted through AHPA’s National Mentoring Program

Nationally, the Association is governed by a Board of Directors. The Board Directors nominate and are accepted at the Association’s Annual General Meeting. They assume responsibility for the governance and strategic direction of the Association ensuring that it is meeting its Constitutional requirements. AHPA has become the professional association specifically for people involved in, or with an interest in the practice, research and study of health promotion.

We will endeavour to grow our presence across the NT to meet the changing needs of our unique community, and make health promotion a priority. Prevention is always better cure!
