The aims of the Australasian Epidemiological Association (AEA) are to develop and promote the discipline of epidemiology in Australasia through:
- promoting excellence and innovation in the practice of epidemiological methods
- communication of issues relevant to epidemiologists
- advocating for funding, capacity building and policy development
- strategic alliances with related organisations to maintain high standards in teaching and research and to promote the use of evidence in health-related policy making and clinical practice.
This will be achieved through being an organisation committed to:
- leadership and advocacy on key issues related to the discipline of epidemiology
- excellence in governance
- a strong, diverse member focus.
AEA is governed by a seven member council elected from the membership. Five members of Council form the Executive, namely the President, Vice-President, President-elect, Treasurer and Honorary Secretary. At least one member of Council must be based in New Zealand.
Other roles within council include the coordination of local chapters, and management of the website. The council co-opts a student member to coordinate student matters.
