Welcome to the Australasian Injury Prevention Network

The Australian Injury Prevention Network (AIPN) was established in 1996 as the peak national body advocating for injury prevention and safety promotion in Australia. In 2017, the network extended its activities to New Zealand and became the Australasian Injury Prevention Network.

Through conferences, publications, events, advocacy activities and research, the Network benefits from its high profile, influential membership base of leading injury prevention researchers, and those working to reduce the incidence of injury and harm throughout Australasia.

We look forward to welcoming you as a member of the Network, and I encourage you to become an active member of the Network and benefit from the information shared, and the other members participation.

The scope of the AIPN interest areas includes:


  • Injury prevention


  • Safety promotion


  • Treatment and rehabilitation


  • Research and surveillance

Every day, 26 people in Australia are killed through injury, and 1200 people are hospitalised.
