Welcome to the website of the Australian Association for Adolescent Health (AAAH).
The AAAH was originally incorporated in 1978 and flourished during the 1980s and early 90s, before entering a quiescent phase after the withdrawal of federal funding. In 2011 AAAH was re-launched at the Youth Health 2011 conference in Sydney, NSW.
Since then, the Association has hosted two very successful conferences, Fremantle in 2013 and the 2015 Youth Health Conference in Melbourne in November 2015. Over the last four years AAAH has developed links with a range of other organisations including the International Association for Adolescent Health, the Australian Medical Association, the Australian Youth Affairs Coalition and the Royal Australasian College of Physicians. Many more links are being developed as our membership and reputation grow.
AAAH aims to improve the health of young people across Australia and to advocate for the health needs of this group. By becoming a member of AAAH, individuals have the opportunity to be part of this process and to develop links and networks with a group of people committed to ensuring that the specific health issues affecting young people are acknowledged and addressed.
AAAH is a proud member of the IAAH (International Association for Adolescent Health).
