This free panel discussion is co-hosted by the Council of Academic Public Health Institutions Australasia (CAPHIA) and the Australian Health Promotion Association (AHPA) featuring leaders from public health and health promotion associations across Australasia. Insights and predictions for the future of public health will be discussed, including what we can do as individuals associations to prepare.

Questions to be explored include:

  • What are the current public health challenges and opportunities for individuals, disciplines, the workforce, associations and the profession as a whole?
  • How can individuals and associations better prepare for future challenges?
  • What is required to future-proof our workforce? How can portability of public health capability and capacity be enhanced across the globe?
  • How can public health and health promotion associations work together to advocate for greater investment and action to improve public health and wellbeing throughout Australasia?

This interactive panel will give attendees the opportunity to ask questions. The event will be available for viewing after the session on Vimeo along with some take-home messages.
