About the Australasian Association of Bioethics and Health Law

The Australasian Association of Bioethics and Health Law (AABHL) is Australia and New Zealand’s leading organisation concerned with issues of bioethics and health law. Its members come from many disciplines including medicine, nursing, law, ethics, philosophy, healthcare administration, allied health and complementary healthcare. AABHL encourages those with a professional interest in the relationship between law, bioethics, health care, public health, and global health governance, to become members.

 AABHL was formed in 2009 from the amalgamation of the two leading Australasian organisations concerned with bioethical issues: the Australasian Bioethics Association and the Australian and New Zealand Institute of Health Law and Ethics, both established in the early 1990s.

 AABHL’s main aims are to:

-         Advance the study of bioethics and health law in Australasia;

-         Increase public awareness of bioethics and health law issues;

-         Promote public debate and to facilitate communication with and to the public, governments, organisations and the media about bioethics and health     law issues;
