Advocacy

The Australian Health Promotion Association seeks to influence a broad range of public policies as they impact on population health.

On behalf of members, the AHPA Board and Branch Committees regularly provide formal and informal submissions, letters and statements on a variety of national and state/territory issues of relevance to our role in promoting good health, preventing illness and redressing inequities.

Our advice is underpinned by the evidence for effective health promotion policies and strategies and the needs of our members and all those working in the field of health promotion.

Often, AHPA collaborates with our partners on joint submissions.

Archived submissions are available on request.

In 2015 the Queensland government sought submissions on the establishment of a Queensland Health Promotion Commission.  The Australian Health Promotion Association (AHPA) submission welcomed this opportunity and commented on the role, scope and strategic direction of the Commission.
