Service to the Public
The AHA provides information about homoeopathy and a free referral service of professional homoeopaths to the public. AHA Professional members can be found via Find a Homoeopath on the AHA website www.homeopathyoz.org.
All AHA Professional members are registered with the Australian Register of Homopaths (AROH). They abide by the register's Code of Conduct and Standards of Practice and the AHA's Code of Ethics and Practice. AROH registration requires that practitioners are qualified to the national standard, have on-going professional indemnity and public liability insurance, hold a current first aid certificate and undergo regular practitioner development.
As AROH registered homopaths AHA Professional members qualify as providers for private health funds on ancillary benefits tables.
The AHA is run by elected Professional members.
State Branch Committees exist in a number of states. They are elected annually and nominate a member as the State Branch representative on the AHA's National Council.
National Council is the governing body and consists of one member from each State Branch plus a number of members elected by national ballot.
The Australian Homopathic Association Inc (AHA) was formed in 1995 from the merger of the New South Wales, South Australia and Victoria/Tasmania branches of the Australian Federation of Homopaths, the Australian Society of Homopaths (Queensland), and the Oceanic Homopathic Research Foundation (Western Australia), but its origins date from 1946 with the Australian Institute of Homopathy. In 1997 further mergers were agreed with the Australian Federation of Homopaths in Queensland and in Western Australia, and with the Homopathic Association of New South Wales.
