Allied Health Professions Australia (AHPA)
Allied Health Professions Australia (AHPA) is the recognised national voice for allied health professions in Australia, representing and advocating for the role of allied health professionals in health, aged care, disability, education and all systems where allied health services have a role.
As the peak national organisation for allied health professions, AHPA has an important strategic leadership role and is the body that the Federal Government and other national organisations turn to when they seek a collective view of allied health.
The strategic objectives of AHPA are to:
Deliver effective advocacy which advances allied health and provides value to members.
Enhance their profile with key stakeholders to increase influence.
Support their members to enhance their own knowledge and influence.
Develop a sustainable resource base to achieve our purpose.
RCAA is a member Association of AHPA and in this capacity engages in a broad range of advocacy activities designed to influence the decisions and policy-making of Federal, State and Territory governments as well as other key stakeholders.
We know that allied health professionals have a crucial role in the Australian health care system but that a range of issues may limit their ability to support consumers.
