Professional Associations

New Zealand Health Design Council (NZHDC) is a network of professionals dedicated to advancing quality in the design, planning and management of New Zealand’s health facility infrastructure. The NZHDC meets on a regular basis, generally on the third Tuesday of each month.

The Australasian College of Health Service Management (‘The College’) is the peak professional body for health managers in Australasia and brings together health leaders to learn, network and share ideas.

The Australasian Health Infrastructure Alliance (AHIA) is a unique Australian and New Zealand public sector collaboration and was established in 2004. AHIA is the custodian of the Australasian Health Facility Guidelines (AusHFG) which were first released in 2007.

Through the AusHFG and its member activities, AHIA proactively supports and builds the capability of the public health sector by providing facility design and other guidance based on evidence and industry and consumer collaboration.

As a leader in health facility planning, AHIA can provide contemporary best practice resources to jurisdictions and service providers that is based on nationally shared knowledge and overseas experience.

Founded in 1948, the UIA is a federation of national professional organisations working to unify architects, influence public policies and advance architecture in service to the needs of society. Its collaboration with the AHDC is primarily through its Public Health Group that helps members of the design profession understand and accept their responsibility to create places that protect health, develop better health and restore health once it is impaired.

The Institute of Healthcare Engineering Australia (IHEA) leads the way for our members to excel in providing state of the art health care facilities and leading-edge management services to support the health and wellbeing of all Australians.

Organised by SALUS Global Knowledge Exchange and Architects for Health, the European Healthcare Design 2024 Congress, Awards & Exhibition is held annually in London, UK.
