What is the Australian Injury Prevention Network?

The Australian Injury Prevention Network (AIPN) is the peak national body advocating for injury prevention and safety promotion in Australia.

The AIPN represents the growing industry of injury prevention and safety promotion researchers and practitioners around Australia whilst advocating to raise the profile, and influence change, in this important area of public health.

Through national 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 Australia.

The AIPN was formed in 1996 in order to establish collaboration between injury researchers, policymakers 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.

The main goal of the AIPN is to facilitate the minimisation of injury-related harm throughout Australia 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:

  • Injury prevention

  • Safety promotion

  • Treatment and rehabilitation

  • Research and surveillance

  • Education and training

  • Information exchange
