Partnership or Collaboration; is there a difference?
17-19 September 2013,
Devon Hotel, New Plymouth.
Are you worried public health may be falling off the political agenda? This year’s conference is the ideal time to share your innovations, your struggles, and your vision for the future of public health in Aotearoa/New Zealand. Every voice counts, so come and be a part of New Zealand’s premier public health event.
In an ever changing political and social environment, policies and priorities are constantly changing the way we think and respond to meeting the needs of whānau and communities. The focus of the conference is to ask us to think about the way we work, the way we prioritise and the way we engage.
The theme of the conference is Partnership or Collaboration; is there a difference?

About PHA conferences
The PHA holds a conference in a different region each year.
There are several objectives of the annual conference.
- Education: The conference is a major educational and networking event for groups and individuals working in public
health in New Zealand. It can therefore play a significant role in developing and maintaining the competence of public health
workers whose needs for continued learning and development are ongoing.
- Advocacy: The conference provides an opportunity for publicity and media events on issues of high public health concern.
International and local speakers provide excellent opportunities for advocacy.
- Fundraising: The conference provides an essential basis of financial support for the PHA. It provides funding for the
host branch, and for national operations. It provides funding for the host branch, and ensures the PHA has independent income to advocate for public health free from contractual constraints.
Programmes and abstracts from recent years' conferences are available online.
