About Us

Welcome to the web home for Children's Healthcare Australasia!

It is an honour to serve as the President of CHA, an organisation with an extraordinary record of advocacy, action and commitment to children, young people and their families. A healthy society needs healthy children.

CHA is an international not-for-profit organisation, and the peak body for hospitals and health services caring for children and young people in Australia and New Zealand.

We are a multidisciplinary community of organizations and individuals committed to enhancing healthcare outcomes for children, young people and their families.

We support hospitals and health services to achieve excellence in care of children and young people through:

The CHA team, our members, your colleagues, the parents and families of sick children, work together improving our healthcare systems.  As President I will benefit from your individual perspectives, your rich diversity of experience and wealth of knowledge. As an organisation we will welcome ideas, contributions and perspectives that mean we can improve our knowledge, understand our differences and work and learn together.

The health of children and young people matters; your membership counts, and as the President I am excited to lead this team.
