Welcome to the Australasian Injury Prevention Network
The Australasian Injury Prevention Network (AIPN) is the peak body advocating for injury prevention and safety promotion in Australasia.
The AIPN represents the growing industry of injury prevention and safety promotion researchers and practitioners around Australasia whilst advocating to raise the profile, and influence change, in this important area of public health.
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.
The AIPN was formed in 1996 in order to establish collaboration between injury researchers, policy makers and practitioners and to provide a coordinated voice among injury prevention professionals. The AIPN is a not-for-profit, non-government organisation with national and international membership from all sectors of the injury prevention community.
AIPN is governed by a written constitution and managed by an elected Executive Committee, supplemented by co-opted members, and supported by a part-time Secretariat.
The main goal of the AIPN is to facilitate the minimisation of injury-related harm throughout Australasia for all vulnerable population groups by coordinating the expertise of injury prevention researchers, practitioners, and policy makers.
The scope of the AIPN interest areas includes:
Treatment and rehabilitation
Research and surveillance
Education and training
We look forward to welcoming you as a member of the Network.
