It was great to see two PHAIWA team members publish a chapter in a Health Promotion textbook earlier this year. The text, Health Promotion in the 21st Century is edited by MaryLou Fleming and Louise Baldwin for QUT. The chapter that our team contributed focused on policy, legislation and environmental change. In addition, there are case studies on the WA Indigenous Storybook and the #endingtrachoma projects included in other chapters. The link to the textbook is here.
The Public Health Advocacy Institute of WA (PHAIWA) aims to promote, support and develop public health advocacy in Western Australia and beyond.
