We are an NHMRC Partnership Centre, bringing together prevention researchers and decision-makers to better understand what works and what doesn’t to prevent lifestyle-related chronic health problems. The Australian Prevention Partnership Centre offers opportunities for careers and study at both the coordinating centre in Sydney and with our partners and research projects based in other organisations.

Volunteer with us at Catherine Hamlin Fistula Foundation : Hamlin

Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia is not a volunteer organisation. For this to be a sustainable organisation it should be run by Ethiopians, for Ethiopians, supporting the local economy and employment market. Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia is proud to provide employment for over 550 locals across six hospitals, the Hamlin College of Midwives and Desta Mender, our rehabilitation facility. Internships Our internships are full-time and unpaid for one calendar month at our office in Pyrmont, Sydney. Our intern program gives a behind the scenes, hands-on experience of what it is like to raise funds and awareness for the life-changing work of Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia. FFF. “I first came across women and girls suffering from fistulas through my work with Mercy Ships and I couldn’t believe that in this day and age, there are women and girls in the world suffering horrendous injuries because they have no access to medical care during childbirth.


These women and girls are mothers, daughters, aunts – they are just like us – yet they are condemned to a life of shame and isolation because they become incontinent due to their fistulas and are outcast by their families and communities. Who in this country can imagine giving birth to a stillborn baby and being left incontinent as a result? It is unthinkable to us, yet millions of women are suffering silently and they have no-one speaking up for them. I am appealing to you to become their voice. Freedom from Fistula is not only aimed at providing the surgeries to repair the women and girls already suffering, it is also aimed at preventing the problem getting worse –through training and education.

With this integrative and holistic concept several aspects of the physical and social environments of citizens are being approached and improved in order to achieve that those environments facilitate and support active and healthy ageing for all. The concept regards all ages and has life long approach: from before conception until high ages. This will lead to a higher level of participation in society, encourages self-esteem and improves functional and intrinsic capacity of people. Since the launch of the age-friendly environments concept, over 500 cities and communities have signed up with WHO’s Global Network of Age-friendly Cities and Communities. In 2012 in Europe, there was the initiative to bring together public authorities, advocacy organisations, businesses and research in the European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing (EIP AHA).
