AHPA Health Promotion Symposium 2018: Better Practice Better Placed

Thursday, 23 August 2018 (All day) to Friday, 24 August 2018 (All day)

We face unprecedented challenges and exciting opportunities for human and planetary health both locally and globally.

Better Practice Better Placed is an intentionally ambiguous and ambitious theme for the Health Promotion Symposium. The Symposium aims to encourage analysis, debate and provide opportunities to network, discuss, and share practices, research and policies that have led, or will lead, to better and more equitable population health outcomes. It is an opportunity to share and assess where we are in health promotion and what we need to do, to be better placed to ensure a healthier population within supportive social, built and natural environments.

In Australia a rapidly growing, ageing, and diverse population along with substantial ecological, political, economic and social change has led to broad and complex health needs and inequities.  At the same time we face a range of planetary level challenges that will have or are already having an impact on population health and wellbeing. 

At the Symposium we will explore challenges and identify opportunities and actions in policy and politics, places, partnerships and programs that contribute to building sustainable and liveable places with equitable opportunities and a healthy planet for all, now, and for future generations.
