2018 Public Health Prevention Conference Wednesday, 2 May 2018

The Public Health Prevention Conference is a newly established conference, convened by the Public Health Association of Australia (PHAA). In 2018, the Public Health Prevention Conference will focus on prevention and protection, consistent with the World Federation of Public Health Associations' (WFPHA)'s Global Charter for the Public's Health. This conference will provide a platform to engage, challenge and exchange ideas, where pivotal issues for building prevention in Australia will be discussed and where delegates will learn from the experience, opinions and perspectives of sector leaders and their peers.

In 2018 the Conference vision is that 'We can do more and we must'. Three Conference Themes will guide the program:

  • Systems thinking;
  • Translation of research and evidence into action;
  • Advocacy and where our efforts should be focused in order to strengthen prevention.

The themes are designed to set the new prevention agenda for Australia. They draw attention to the fragmented nature of prevention in Australia and the imperatives to move forward to strengthen systems and actions for prevention.

The Conference will have high quality national experts presenting various aspects of this rapidly moving and exciting era of public health prevention. The conference will have a focus on cross sector, multilevel interventions to build a healthier Australia through prevention.

We hope that you can be a part of this vibrant scientific program showcasing exciting and innovative work in public health prevention.
