AHPC is an innovative Australian think thank working to improve health and reduce preventable chronic disease in Australia. We work to inform and influence public policy and its practice with the aim of improving the health of Australians, in particular those in socio-economically disadvantaged communities.

Led by Rosemary Calder, one of Australia’s most experienced health policy experts, AHPC’s team of health professionals and researchers are dedicated to making a difference to the health and wellbeing of all Australians.

The AHPC leads the Growing Brimbank program, a long-term collaboration between Victoria University and the Brimbank City Council in Melbourne’s west, that aims to deliver crucial evidence on how to improve the health and wellbeing of people in communities of socio-economic disadvantage.
