The PHAA is committed to promoting the health of the public as well as serving as a professional resource for public health professionals. To do so, PHAA develops evidence based policy options and engages with appropriate bodies, in particular with governments at all levels.
PHAA has developed policies in a variety of public health areas, to summarise the current evidence and guide public health practice. These policies are guided by the Ottawa Charter, Earth Charter and subsequent Global Conferences on Health Promotion. All PHAA members are invited to contribute to policy development and review. Current policies may be viewed at http://www.phaa.net.au/advocacy-policy/policies-position-statements
