Health Promotion - Good health is good business

Welcome to the NT Branch of the Australian Health Promotion Association (AHPA). At AHPA NT we are a smaller and younger collective of volunteers who wish to contribute to the objectives of AHPA and support our local members. We organise professional development events throughout the year and meet every two months to collaborate all things ‘Health Promotion’.

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 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. Become a member today and be a part of something that promotes good health and good business. Welcome to AHPA NT! We are a smaller branch, but no less exciting! If you live in the Northern Territory, or are interested in moving to the Northern Territory, we would love to hear from you!

Background

The NT Branch is the leading health promotion association in the NT, dedicated to improving the 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.
The NT Branch Executive meets on a bi-monthly basis to progress the objectives of the AHPA. Key priorities for the NT Branch and Executive include:

• Professional Development (including selected events, linking in with existing events and discovering innovative ways to build capacity)

• Scholarship program for NT Branch Members to access and attend professional development opportunities intra- and inter-state

• Communication with Branch Members to encourage networking of health promotion professionals in the NT.

The Australian Health Promotion Association is the leading dedicated health promotion body in Australia and is run by a team of volunteer Directors who meet on a monthly basis to progress objectives of the Association and provide support to its members. 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!
