Environmental Health Australia


Environmental Health Australia

Environmental Health Australia (EHA) is a professional body for Environmental Health Officers or Environmental Health Practitioners (Public Health Inspectors) in Australia.

Established as a non-profit organisation in 1935, it is governed by a board of nine directors, who elect the senior officers. The organisation is composed of six branches - Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia, Western Australia and Tasmania. Each branch has its own branch council, and many branches also have sub-groups representing local issues and special interests.
