Advancing Public Health

Education, Research & Workforce Development

CAPHIA is the peak organisation that represents public health in universities that offer undergraduate and postgraduate programs, research and workforce development in public health throughout Australasia.

Our purpose is to maintain high quality academic standards in the education and development of public health practitioners and researchers, to lead and represent public health education in the tertiary sector and to be a respected voice and advocate for the development of public health professionals and researchers within Australasia.


We work with our 39 member institutions to advance public health education, research and workforce development.


Individually and with our partners and networks, we advocate for academic public health to advance human, animals and planetary health.
